The wellbeing and mental health of our children and young people is increasingly becoming an issue of concern to our community, policy makers and political leaders.
In 2017/18 the State Government made a commitment to rebalance the health system by increasing and enhancing existing out-of-hospital and community-based hospital alternatives as a key strategy in supporting the sustainability of the system into the future.
The City of Unley wanted to develop an active participation framework – a structured, generic approach that the Council could use to engage the community on complex and polarising policy and city-wide issues. They then tested it – on a controversial issue!
During 2022 we worked with Regional Development Australia Murraylands & Roverland to deliver a region-wide engagement process with the community – to prepare the Regions’ plan for resilience.
