Community Development

Community Development

We are committed to empowered communities in regional Queensland. This includes working with diverse stakeholders, implementing (sometimes novel) systems and processes, and advocacy on behalf of communities.

Examples of significant activities include:

With Every Child Central Queensland Inc, Geoff formalised the Rockhampton Community Alliance, as part of the state and federal governments’ Stronger Places Stronger People initiative.

Performance People worked with Rotary Club of Rockhampton and numerous other community stakeholders to develop a wallchart of nearly 100 services and programs available through the community, health and education sectors for young people in Rockhampton.

At the time this website was being developed, Geoff had secured funding and a commitment to be involved from the Rockhampton Community Based Crime Action Committee to develop a simple Community Development model; to compile a set of collaboration tools for undertaking Community Development; and to train up to 100 local people in using the model and tools.
