Social plans and strategies

We focus on ensuring our growing and diverse communities are inclusive, connected and have a sense of belonging. We’re doing this by promoting cross-cultural education, providing welcoming spaces and delivering services and programs for those who may be vulnerable to exclusion.

We ensure our communities are healthy and safe by supporting mental health, reducing social isolation and reducing crime. Through increased engagement and education, we can further build on the current connections ensuring a safe and healthy community.
