Content

Given the close correlations between poverty, social exclusion and uptake of social work services, this unit provides underpinning knowledge which will be applicable in all aspects of social work practice including direct practice, community development, policy analysis and research. The focus on poverty and social exclusion also reflects ongoing policy initiatives of governments which find expression in policies for social inclusion and social justice in areas such as health, education, employment, housing and criminal justice as well as social welfare.
