Community Development & Planning

We are funded by NSW Department of Communities and Justice to provide programs and services to the communities of Bligh Park and South Windsor. Community Development is a process to bring about change founded on equality, inclusion and social justice. The process of Community Development enables people to:

  • improve the quality of their own lives and the community they live in
  • identify their needs
  • take action to influence the decisions which affect their lives

We work closely with individuals, community groups and resident groups to further community development. We would love your input!
