Community Development

Community Development is about helping communities do things for themselves. It is a process based on social justice principles such as equality, access, fairness, human rights, empowerment and local participation and control.

We do Community Development through:

  • Community consultation (e.g. conversations, meetings and surveys)
  • Assisting and supporting the growth and development of community groups
  • Supporting civil and social action campaigns
  • Mapping community strengths, needs, gaps and assets
  • Delivering community activities and events
