Event description

Description

Theme: Investing in the future – leaving no one behind

The EquityFest aims to progress the equity agenda in Sydney Local Health District in partnership with our communities, and governments and non-government organisations. It is a festival and celebration of our current work and an opportunity to reflect on how we might better identify and reduce inequities in the health of our communities as we move towards providing opportunities for everyone to achieve their health potential.

The 2018 EquityFest will focus on reducing inequity by building the ability of our many communities to work together to create local opportunities and environments for health. This year we will focus on social inclusion across the life course.

At SLHD EquityFest, Join-in and Speak-out sessions will provide opportunities to gain a greater understanding of equity issues and develop new partnerships around common interests. However, as the name suggests, the Join-in groups are asking stakeholder to act, beyond their usual sphere of activity to address social exclusion. The Speak-out sessions will provide opportunities to understand how social exclusion affects certain groups and show case initiatives and partnerships that are supporting healthy and inclusive communities.

Social inclusion strategies attempt to address these issues by:

  • Providing opportunities for education and training;
  • Innovative ways of employing people;
  • Connect people to existing health, welfare, cultural and recreational facilities; &
  • Finding ways for excluded groups to have some control over decisions that affect them.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
