Collective action in the Community
Together with partners we’re working to overcome barriers in the system using our experience in service delivery. That means collaborating on specific initiatives where collective action achieves stronger outcomes for families and communities – initiatives such as The Relentless Connector Initiative and Ubuntu.
Changing the system
As a knowledgeable community resource, we inform and influence social policy and we’re a sounding board for decision makers in all levels of government. Most importantly we bring the perspectives of the thousands of people we work with to the table, shaping policy and decisions to truly reflect their realities, hope and dreams.
