A survey instrument across four domains, health and wellbeing, social supports, program engagement and participation and social inclusion, together with in-depth interview schedules will be developed for collecting longitudinal data from the participants in this and similar pathways to social inclusion. A cost and benefit analysis will examine program costs and health. Justice and other community costs. Social inclusion policy and program implications for such cross-sector programs will be identified.
