OVERVIEW

PURPOSE
Coordination of community conversations and connections across Mt Druitt, to ensure the work is grounded in the local community, and to support community initiatives.

STATUS
A workshop was held on 4 May 2015 to elaborate the ideas captured at the Swarm session in March. From this an interim Community Connections Group was established to continue to develop the work.

ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The role of the Community Connections group is to:

•  Ensure community voice is at the centre of all that we do. This includes building relationships with community members,
ensuring the right mix and balance of community members are included in all of The Hive collaboration groups.
•  Community Conversations. Develop and manage the community conversations stream of work, making sure it is always
deeply connected to the Collective Action areas.
•  Community capacity building. Enabling community members to build the skills and supports they need to participate
and have their voice heard and included (e.g. child-care needs, training).
