These workshops provide the community service sector an opportunity to network as well as share trends, issues and opportunities they see in the community. Outcomes from these workshops help shape the broad strategies, objectives and actions in Council policies and plans. They also set the priorities for the community grant program and guide the work of the sector networks.
These workshops are for workers from government and non-government community organisations only.
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.
