Building Stronger CommunitiesIt aims to inform and connect people involved in community strengthening projects across Victoria, and to assist those who want to find out more about community strengthening approaches.
Strengthening communities is a key priority of the Victorian Government which is aiming to improve social, economic and environmental well-being for all Victorians, and to develop new partnerships to address inequality and disadvantage.
Community strengthening has emerged as a key policy theme as governments around the world seek ways of addressing increasingly complex issues facing contemporary society. It is a process whereby communities, government, business and philanthropic organisations work together to achieve agreed social, economic and environmental outcomes.
It works by government listening to what local people believe could improve their community and sharing ideas about how these changes can be achieved. Communities themselves are usually in the best position to develop ideas on how to improve their conditions.
