We’re pleased to be assisting Advance Heathcote in an initiative to invigorate leadership & increase volunteerism in their local community
Advance Heathcote is a not for profit organisation, working ‘to advance the liveability and community wellbeing of Heathcote & Districts’ [ http://www.advanceheathcote.com ]
Their current initiative is themed “Celebrating & Strengthening Community.” It involves having conversations with residents in Heathcote to listen for what’s wanted & needed in relation to participation & contribution, so that future planning can be based in common understanding.
Celebrating & strengthening communities is a large part of our mission here at Make a Change. We’re always looking for ways we can support local organisations & individual leaders who work tirelessly to support their communities to thrive.
For this project, we are assisting Advance Heathcote in designing a strategic communications plan.
This is to ensure the invitation to participate is welcoming, clear & takes people on a journey from awareness > to engagement > to discussion > to relevant solutions.
We’re also facilitating two in-person gatherings in November:
- Lunch – 26 October, 12.30pm – 2.30pm
- Early Dinner – 26 October, 5.30pm – 7.30pm
These gatherings are to find out what might assist individuals to become more involved in their community & what can be done to further support those already active.
Through open & honest conversations the intended outcome is to generate ideas & action around what community leadership looks like for Heathcote & its district community & how this can be nurtured, developed & grown.
Advance Heathcote will use the outcomes of this initiative to inform their planning of projects now & into the future.
If you live, work or visit the Heathcote region & would like to take part, email [email protected]
