What is Social Inc.?

Social Inc. has been cocreated with Sydney high schools. It is a movement that seeks to overturn the stigma and social disadvantage around disability in high schools. Social Inc. challenges school communities to change the perception of disability in their school through engaging with all students, increasing awareness and building active social networks.

Why Social Inc.?

How well does your school community engage people of all abilities and celebrate people’s unique strengths? Social Inc. encourages you to actively promote diversity in your school community, after all, our differences are what make us interesting, help us to learn from each other, and give us strength as a community.

  • Research shows that Australian youth with disability were more socially excluded in 2011 than they were in 2001
  • Peers are present as onlookers in 87% of bullying interactions, and play a central role in the bullying process
  • Children with visible physical conditions or disabilities, such as cerebral palsy and Down syndrome, can be more likely to be excluded from social activities and called names.

This is what our teachers think of Social Inc.
