UnitingCare Community’s Social Inclusion services provide support to childcare services and individual children to remove barriers that may be experienced by children with a disability, who come from a culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and Indigenous children. As part of our social inclusion work we have established a number of Inclusion Support Agencies (ISA) that provide childcare services with practical support to help build the capacity to create a quality inclusive environment for children with additional needs.
Individual programs are also operated by the service that foster inclusion such as Community Development, Peer Skills and Time for Grandparents. These programs focus on developing the full potential of people and communities to enable meaningful participation in all aspects of life, including social activities, work and education, family and personal interests.

Community Development provides opportunities for people to create and own a project and develop the skills to work together to see the project to completion. UnitingCare Community establishes projects to work specifically with youth, older people, indigenous communities and refugees.
