connectwest held a “connect the west” breakfast in November 2017.
This event marks the official launch of the group. It was highlight successful with a panel made up of representatives from youth, local government, business and social services.
The event was highly regarded as a great opportunity to meet others. One participant also noted that “a forum to speak about their volunteer or organisation” would be beneficial going forward. connectwest embedded this element into its other events since then. Helping to create more opportunities to meet face-to-face and improve community networks. In particular collaboration, relationship building and trust.
“We have a vision for a connected, collaborative metropolitan West where community members come together to celebrate and champion each other’s ideas”
