This report presents a range of data aimed at exploring the nature of women’s marginalisation and isolation in the ACT. It examines the concepts of marginalisation and isolation and the risk factors that have been identified as prevalent amongst marginalised and isolated ACT women. It also provides estimates of the number of ACT women who are at risk of or are experiencing marginalisation and isolation. The research made clear that the five key groups of women most commonly at risk of social isolation in the ACT are: aged women, women who are carers, women at home with children, low income women without their own transport, women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
