Community Building Program

The Community Building Program assists the community to include people with a disability and their families and carers.

It does this by:

  • Improving community understanding about the needs and aspirations of people with a disability
  • Ensuring that the needs of people with a disability are the focus of community planning
  • Supporting service providers to assist people with a disability to live the sort of life they choose
  • Developing easy ways for people to access the information they need about services, community activities and consultation opportunities.

How the program works

The program aims to build long-term, sustainable change in local communities by bringing together the strengths, resources and creativity of individuals, communities and government.

The aspirations and opportunities that exist within each local community are the driving force of the programs.
