Centre for Health through Action on Social Exclusion

CHASE vision

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.

CHASE philosophy

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.

CHASE mission
  • to undertake research and development of the highest quality, including the development of theory, in partnership with communities and organisations
  • to provide evidence-based policy and practice advice to government and industry
  • to deliver professional development, education and training services
