Centre for Health through Action on Social Exclusion


Working collaboratively with communities, organisations and governments to promote social inclusion and to enhance the health and wellbeing of all, particularly those populations, communities and individuals who experience social exclusion.


The CHASE philosophy is that individuals, communities and populations should be assisted to find their own ways to promote social inclusion and to find their own solutions to exclusion issues. We appreciate that not everyone can, or wishes to be included in the 'mainstream'. Nevertheless, the health of the so-called 'included' and 'excluded' can be promoted regardless of their social positioning.
