The Social Exclusion Task Force aims to extend opportunity to the least advantaged so that they can enjoy more of the choices, chances and power that the rest of society takes for granted. Social exclusion has its roots in poor early years, is compounded by the absence of basics such as a job and a home, and is often left unsolved by public services working in silos. To correct this, we work with the rest of government to identify priorities, test solutions, and facilitate collaboration across government.
Socially excluded adults are prioritised in the 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review. A new Public Service Agreement (PSA) is aimed at reducing social exclusion amongst the most vulnerable adults.
