COMMUNITY and service providers came together recently for an event at the Brighton Civic Centre to discuss how they can make positive change so all children in the Bridgewater, Gagebrook and Brighton communities can get the very best start to life. Chats For Change was an event co-designed by the community and some local service providers, to create a unique opportunity for the community to start to lead change.
The first 250 of 1000 Voices was shared at Chats for Change and was used as the basis for discussion. This document is activating the voice of the community and helping to mobilise people who want to see change for our children. This work comes from an initiative called Connected Beginnings that focuses on Aboriginal children and their families so that they get the very best start to life. Connected Beginnings wants to include every child, and families of all backgrounds in the work that it is doing to create a healthy, happy and connected community where all children have the chance to grow up well and achieve their dreams.
The group is seeking help to lead this change across the Brighton municipality.
