The Northside team has been heavily involved in community development and engagement across Canberra’s north for more than 20 years. Our experience goes beyond the traditional approach of supporting groups and programs to become self-sustainable. Our Community Engagement team works with people to implement projects that reduce barriers to social and economic participation. We see community development as a vital opportunity to harness the strengths and skills of individuals and communities and to provide them with opportunities to use them.
We love being part of our local community and our team is never more happy than working alongside individuals, community groups, business traders and government teams to address wicked social problems or deliver out-of-the-box innovative initiatives.
Our community development programs:
- bring people together
- facilitate community consultation
- listen to and act on the needs of the community
- support the establishment of new groups and activities
Do you have an idea that would benefit and increase involvement in your community? Do you have a social group, club or social enterprise in need of assistance to get off the ground? Are you looking to get involved with existing groups, clubs or social enterprises?
We would love to hear from you. Please call us on 02 6171 8000 if you would like to be involved with existing groups or to tell us about your ideas!
