“Active and Connected Communities” with Successful Communities is all about connecting people to their local community and its people. About visiting new places, organisations. community places and services when they first arrive. And its about social connection, understanding their new home, and creating honest and meaningful connection. It is brings together those newly arrived and the longer term residents and community members to say “welcome” and to bring us together to share what we know, increase connection and belonging. We also know that Community Leaders have the passion, energy and ability to connect with new and old arrivals. And want to do more and provide more to their communities and members – with limited resources this is a challenge.

 Inspired by Communities already doing these things, we wonder if we can support you to do the same in your community, we have collated resources for you in areas such as Employment and Getting a Job, Volunteering and the Benefits of Volunteering, Locals Services and Community, Social Connections & Activities, Home & Family Life, Health Systems and Other Services and much more!
