What is Community Leadership?

Community leadership and empowerment are well recognised as key to contributing to change within complex systems and strengthening community health and wellbeing[1]. This includes highlighting the important role of community and co-design in achieving broader strategic objectives[2].

connectwest aims to support community leaders from various backgrounds, training and special interest areas. Mainly by addressing the identified gaps of networking, supporting existing group and training.

connectwest recognises all leaders. Those that have gone through formal leadership, governance or champion programs and people active in their community.
