Under this pillar, we work to create the following outcomes:

  • Increased effectiveness of our Community Partners.
  • Strengthened capability of our Community Partners to engage in partnerships & to influence outcomes.
  • Created more trusted & genuine partnerships, which centre our Community Partners’ voices as the experts.
  • Our Community Partners believe that we have contributed to better outcomes that they value.
  • Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Partners are assisted to deliver the Closing the Gap Agreement which, in turn, creates more shared decision-making; builds the community-controlled sector; improves mainstream institutions’ accountability to community and improved access to, and capability to use, locally relevant data.
