Communities of Focus Cairns South

Community Development

Edmonton, 4869

Mission Australia’s Cairns South Communities of Focus initiative is a place-based approach that aims to address local disadvantage by tackling problems in new ways, convene local community to understand the drivers of disadvantage and build up local leadership and decision making, builds skills, strengths and aspirations towards build cohesion, collaboration, and motivation; and work across funding and program boundaries to catalyze innovation and create positive change. Mission Australia works as the backbone to coordinate activity, develop a common vision, facilitate strategy, and build community capacity across 10 years so that Cairns South Together is able to continue to sustain collective action independent of Mission Australia.
