How will we achieve our vision?
By building on what is already available in our communities, utilising an asset-based approach we will be able to bring forth, local strengths, skills, knowledge, and professional expertise. Utilising community services, resources, groups, and activities. This will allow us to connect people to local assets and provide support closer to home, where most feel comfortable.
