Australian Inclusion Network logo

Australian Inclusion Network is Brisbane based. Our focus has always been to give people the opportunity to find a valued role in their community. We offer people choice, flexibility, and control of their lives. We help people work towards reaching their goals by offering a person centred approach to individuals, their families (and support networks), and by encouraging social inclusion in the wider community. 

Inclusion is the acceptance of all regardless of their differences. It is about appreciating people for who they are. It allows people to value differences in each other by recognising that each person has an important contribution to make to society.
