Canterbury-Bankstown’s Social Planning Workshops are back, but things will look a little different.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be a series of social planning workshops offered face-to-face and online in order to suit the needs of all organisations, workers and community members. The workshops identify emerging needs, existing strategies and opportunities. Information collected from these workshops will help shape the broad strategies, objectives and actions in Council policies and plans. They also set priorities in the Community Grant Program and helps guide the work community networks do.
Social Plannings workshops will take place between Tuesday 16 February and Thursday 4 March.

The social planning workshops focus on:
Our social planning process at Council consists of three related activities:
This includes the production of Demographic and Social Profiles and the regular provision of reports and information on emerging needs and opportunities.
Our social policy documents outline our objectives and broad strategies in each of the following policy areas: Aged, Youth, Disability, Multiculturalism and Community Development. The Branch also reports to Council on emerging issues and drafts policy advice on specific matters of concern to the community and Council. New policy areas are also developed in emerging areas like community protection and community information.
Strategic plans are developed and implemented in consultation with Community Reference groups to enhance program performance and ensure the relevance of strategies to the community. Community Development staff also support community and corporate programs which impact on our social policy objectives, for example Community management, the Community Grants and Event Sponsorship Program and social impact assessment.
