The terms ‘social inclusion’ and ‘togetherness’ are banded around quite a lot in contemporary social work, and is a regular hot-topic within University lectures, due to the wide recognition of the benefits of feeling a part of the community on both physical and mental health. This research was first instigated by Abraham Maslow in 1943, who stated that in order to achieve ‘self-actualisation’, otherwise known as the ability to pursue one’s dreams and aspirations, one must first have a series of essential needs met, including food and shelter, and having a relationship with others. Despite the importance of social inclusion and ‘togetherness’ being recognised, there are very few who will actually put pen to paper and state how this can be achieved. Here at Imagineer, rather than putting pen to paper and writing about how this can be achieved, like so many have in the past, we have found it a great deal more satisfying to show you.
Unlike some others however; we do not refer to this as ‘promoting social inclusion’; rather, we like to keep things as simple as what they really are – for instance, we see this as “going for a few drinks”. So why don’t you come and join us? Our Beat It Night Club takes place on the first Thursday of every month, and costs just £6 on the day, or £5 for bookings in advance. This price includes access to a buffet, a drink and the opportunity to see our very own amazing band – The Outsiders!
