Our Mission

To improve the life chances and opportunities of people who experience the effects of poverty and social exclusion through promoting equality and inclusion for all.

We do this by:

• Increasing access to services, education, employment, culture and recreational activities for people who are experiencing disadvantage or social exclusion;

• Facilitating partnership with local community groups to achieve active and effective community engagement and community participation;

• Working in partnership with local communities, agencies, local elected representatives and state funded bodies to build strong, healthy, sustainable and equitable communities;

• Influencing policy by researching issues and contributing to working groups and committees on relevant policy related issues; and

• Advocating for policies, supports and services that address gaps in relation to unmet needs, dignity and human rights.
