Clients and case workers talking about social inclusion at our Client Engagement Forum

Our second Client Engagement Forum (CEF) in October last year centred around the topic of social inclusion. Social participation is one of five key outcomes we work towards with our clients.

Sacred Heart Mission respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land on which we operate our services. We pay our respects to the ongoing living cultures of Aboriginal peoples, and to Elders past, present and future.
