Thriving Communities Partnership launches in the South West
Monday 29 April saw over 50 people took part in the workshop and official launch of the South West Victoria Chapter for Thriving Communities Partnership.
Coming together to explore how local and national organisations across business, community and government can share knowledge, connect and create positive change for people experiencing vulnerability in the region. Exploring the themes of education and employment, health, access and inclusion and community strength, the chapter seeks to build on the wealth of expertise and experience in cross-sector partnerships already present in the region to innovate, connect and share with each other and the broader Thriving Communities Partnership national network.
This work wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Founding Partner Wannon Water, Deakin University, Synergy 2030 and the Southern Grampians Glenelg Primary Care Partnership.
It was also great to see our national Founding Partners Telstra, ANZ and National Australia Bank.
Local industry leaders get behind business network
Leaders in local industry and business are getting behind a new business initiative, with Wannon Water and Sinclair Wilson announcing they are partnering with Localised.
Wannon Water’s General Manager – Community & Corporate Services, Kellie King said the organisation is proud to be sponsoring the rollout of Localised across the Great South Coast.
“As a key regional organisation, we strive to be an influential community partner, contributing to the wellbeing and prosperity of the region. That’s why we are focused on going beyond water for strong communities.
Sinclair Wilson’s Stephen Davies says Localised creates more visibility of the businesses in the region by helping more businesses to connect and spend locally.
“By partnering with Localised we are helping connect local businesses to each other and encouraging more spending between local businesses. “
“That’s good for business, for jobs and the broader community,” Stephen said.
Local industry support comes as Southern Grampians Shire has joined with Moyne, Corangamite and Warrnambool in the rollout of Localised across the region.
