Summary This paper explores the meaning of ‘inclusive community’ as understood by a major disability service provider in Victoria, Australia. Scope is a major non government agency with 1300 staff, a $50M annual budget and over 4500 clients. The recent adoption of a new Strategic plan for the organisation has focused significant attention on the priority area of building welcoming and inclusive communities. Given this mandate, the organisation has begun research to define and measure outcomes for people with a disability, their families, and the communities with whom they engage, as a result of increased community inclusion. This paper reviews literature on outcomes definition relevant to this task and suggests that outcome measures to date, especially within the field of disability, have offered a set of outcomes that are too limited in their aspiration and breadth. It has been the experience within Scope that people with a disability, including people with intellectual, multiple and complex disabilities, aspire to and experience outcomes across a far broader range of life domains than is currently captured in either existing disability outcome measures or in government policies that frame service delivery. As a result, the paper introduces an emerging outcomes framework which seeks to define outcomes across a range of citizenship domains.
