An inclusive society respects personhood, enabling every individual and community the power and control to fully partner with others and participate across all areas of life. The promotion of social inclusion is an inter-professional endeavour. Internationally, policies have been developed to advance social inclusion, but maintaining such progress is an ongoing concern. In this chapter we discuss the influence of ethical frameworks of utilitarianism, deontology, and virtue ethics upon professional codes of ethics and analyse through the lived experience international examples of cash-for-care policies. We explain how an awareness of ethical frameworks can assist inter-professional responses to the challenges faced by socially inclusive policies.
