Social Inclusion Awareness Week
Mayo Social Inclusion Week gives us the chance to promote and highlight the very positive work that the public and the community sectors do on a day to day basis to reduce discrimination, racism, poverty and social exclusion and to reflect on the many challenges faced by vulnerable members in our community. The 2021 Mayo Social Inclusion Week Theme is ‘Connecting’. The theme we hope will challenge us all to add strength to the work we are already doing and add focus to what will become a very important topic in our Mayo communities. We welcome much discussion and reflection on the concept of reconnecting and connecting through a singular Connecting theme. We pose a challenge to ourselves as advocates for change in our county as we reemerge, reconnect, connect and reach out from what has been an unprecedented time that amplified the needs of many individuals and groups in our community.
