BACKGROUND

 

COMMUNITY CONNECT
REGIONAL NSW

 

 

Community Connect Regional NSW (CCRNSW) saw its early beginnings in the form of Community Connect Central West (CCCW), which I had founded in 2014, with the aim of implementing a collective approach toward improving the resilience and wellbeing of individuals and their communities across the Central West of NSW. A vision, based on validated research evidence showing that the degree of health, strength and resilience, a community is capable of achieving, rests significantly in its collective capacity to connect, relate and work together in a meaningful and purposeful way.  

Hence, it is CCRNSW’s core mission to build strong relationships with individuals, local groups and organisations across regional NSW. Working collaboratively  to implement place based strategies and initiatives that help them develop and build greater capacity and agency. Hence, striving to develop the resilience required to face life's challenges, and the means to attain, and sustain a better future for themselves, and their communities.  

 

CCRNSW utilises the collective strength of its community relations, and extensive network of project partners representing a broad range of sectors including health, employment, community welfare, business, industry, training and education. 

 

Since its inception, CCCW has experienced a significant growth and expansion of its services, and now works closely with towns and communities across regional NSW,
