Inclusion Project Partnership

Hobsons Bay Community Fund has partnered with the University of Melbourne to help local young people overcome barriers to participation in sports and recreation.  In doing so, we established an award winning community-based social work student placement model with the Engagement Unit of the University of Melbourne Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.

Since 2015, University of Melbourne social work student have worked as part of their industrial work experience placements within office space in a local business (kindly provided in-kind by a member of the Committee of the Hobsons Bay Community Fund).

The students have worked with parents, sporting clubs, disability workers, and other stakeholders to establish community approaches to the broader inclusion of young people in sport and recreation.

The students have produced and promoted an inclusion guide that assists local community organisations to facilitate greater access to sport for all people. The inclusion guide offers the community a tangible resource that assists with the implementation of techniques that encourage inclusion throughout their various organisations and initiatives. 

Hobsons Bay Community Fund have also given awards to sporting clubs that have promoted inclusive environments.
