COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

If you have an idea, issue or concern about your community we could support you to address it. We use a community development framework to support and empower small changes that might have a big impact to the broader community.

We strive to respond to the needs and interests of the community by responding and implementing groups, workshops or resources as the need or issue is identified.

We always strive to develop collaborative relationships with you as well as all levels of Government and the wider community services sector.
