Our wellbeing depends on us feeling involved and not being left out.

We had a think about it and these are some words we thought summed up why being included is so important. Some of them overlapped with other wellbeing words:

  • Being allowed to contribute
  • Being accepted the way you are
  • Having friends
  • Not being left out
  • Knowing where you belong in life – that you’re respected
  • Being picked for teams
  • Not being bullied
  • Being treated equally
  • Having a role in your community

Included in your own words.
