Inclusive Communities

This priority area involves enabling inclusiveness of marginalised communities within the Latrobe Valley. There are groups of people in the Latrobe Valley who experience exclusion for reasons such as age, health, economics, education or they may live in an area that is not easily accessible.

Our strategies for achieving this include:

  • Design and develop a community engagement model with people experiencing disadvantage through disability, financial stress, isolation, family violence, chronic disease, mental illness, sexuality, cultural diversity, and age.
  • Analysis of community voice to determine systemic issues for service innovation and improvements.
  • Advocacy to government, agencies, service providers, businesses, industry, community members and Latrobe Health Assembly.
