Community Development

promotes and encourages community spirit by providing a range of support and advocacy, generating equal access to society’s resources.

Community Development is a project responsible for service provision, groups and courses directly related to the needs of the community. Service provision includes information, referral, support and advocacy, self interest courses, men's and women's group as well as direct community liaison. Lobbying and advocating for additional services and programs are also important parts of this role.

This service operates from Watanobbi Community Centre in Harrington Drive, Watanobbi, and outreaches to other areas throughout the Shire. The program is funded through the Department of Community Services. Our co-ordinator facilitates a diverse range of ongoing programs throughout the year.
