This chapter discusses community and inclusion, which can be frequently found in policy. It reviews these two as mechanisms that can help one achieve a better life, but finds them wanting. The chapter proposes as an alternative that relationship building and ‘belonging’ may provide more tangible ideas to inform one's journey to a good life.

Keywords:   community, inclusion, mechanisms, relationship building, belonging
