WHAT IS INCLUSION?
Social inclusion is the act of enabling all groups of people within a society to have a sense of belonging, and to be able to participate in community life. It is based on fundamental values of equity, equality, social justice, and human rights, as well as on the principles of acceptance and embracing diversity.
Ko te kotahitanga te mahi tahi o nga tāngata katoa i roto i tētahi pāpori, e whakawhanaungatanga ana tātou, e whakaurunga i ngā mahi katoa o te hapori. Ko ēnei ngā kaupaua whakapū; te tōkeke, te mana taurite, te tiaki tika, te mana tika, me ngā mātāpono o te whakaaetanga me te rerekētanga.
