We are excited to see COVID-19 restrictions lifting across Australia to our new COVID normal.
Our NDIS team have done an amazing job at supporting NDIS participants navigate our new COVID world from providing virtual support through to helping people access PPE to ensure people could still participate in community in a protected way.
Our Community Building team (who are based in Tasmania and Victoria) are particularly celebrating the opportunity to move around and start engaging in face to face activities. The team is now able to start exploring new projects to support communities to discover community led approaches to inspire local action. Please reach out to Dee, Fiona or Michelle to discuss how the team can support you and your initiative.
Michelle and Dee continue to be regular contributors to the Community Development Round Table hosted by Deakin University. The Round Table provides a space for Community Development academics and practitioners to share stories and learn from each other. If you want to know more or would like to be involved contact Michelle – email@example.com.
This edition of Jeder Yarns shares a couple of training opportunities we have coming up next month along with a couple of blogs, a great community building tip and a tool courtesy of our friends across the ditch. If you would like us to share your story, event or blog in future editions please email us – firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love receiving feedback from people and communities we work with and are delighted to share, what others are saying from our recent online ABCD: Discoverables not Deliverables and ABCD: Measuring What Matters! workshop series.
“ABCD complements well with my co-design practice, particularly in my frrst experiment to facilitate community co-design with ABCD activities integrated – and in place of more traditional community consultation approaches”
“I was excited that RBA and ABCD fit together so neatly- I am looking forward to finding ways to embed RBA into our evaluation approach more effectively and working to include the community at all levels of our community development project.”
Until next month, please enjoy our Jeder Yarns. Yours in Community,
