Social inclusion

We work with individuals and communities that are at risk of experiencing social exclusion, including those with complex needs. Our overriding objective is to reduce the clustering of disadvantage, improve the lives and life chances of Greater Manchester people.

Special and complex needs

We recognise the unequal relationship within a society in which the needs of people with impairments are often given little or no consideration and this can result in social exclusion. As a result of the barriers disabled people face, they may also experience other disadvantages such as poverty, isolation, reduced access to leisure and friendship, illness and restricted opportunities.

CEDE Foundation provides a range socially engaging opportunities, including the ‘singing festival’ initiative to support people with special needs in ways that: improve their choice and opportunity, enhance their abilities, encourage independence, build their confidence and self esteem, involve disabled young people as positive role models, counter negative attitudes / barriers to participation.

Loneliness and isolation

Anyone can find themselves disconnected from their community or feeling lonely. The experience of loneliness varies across the life course, with older people particularly at risk.

We provide regular engagement opportunities to enhance intergenerational activities and Active Citizen initiatives to prevent loneliness and social isolation. Loneliness and social isolation decrease confidence, and are increasingly recognised as risk factors for poor health and reduced wellbeing.
