Conversations – Community Engagement Project

Department of Communities – Thriving Communities Grant

If funded the project will run July 2018 to January 2019

“Exert from Funding Application”

We believe the community centre should belong to the community. While we strive to meet the requirements, priorities and visions of our various stakeholders, we would like to create a community centred, practice framework that is responsive to our community needs and priorities. We would like to be “doing with” rather than “doing to” or “doing for” our community.

Successful community engagement can benefit all of those involved, with direct effects on outcomes including improved health, wellbeing and empowerment, of both communities and community members
