Within occupational therapy, practitioners are likely to work with people who are at risk of social exclusion due to a range of issues that include age, health status, lifestyle choice and cultural background. As a profession, occupational therapy has the ability to identify and support those individuals who are at risk of social exclusion and facilitate social inclusion. Wolfensberger (1998) developed the concept of Social Role Valorisation to develop and maintain valued social roles for those at risk of devaluation. These principles were adapted for use within the UK by O`Brien and Tyne in 1981 in the form of 5 service accomplishments in order that services would be able to operationalise this concept. This framework has been used extensively within Learning Disability services, and continues to provide a legitimate starting point for service review and development for a range of people who are at risk of social exclusion. The aim of this workshop is to review why some people are at risk of social exclusion, assess current service provision using this service framework and consider a way forward for practice.
