Things we'd like to share

better together imageThe Better Together Collective (formerly known as the Swan Hill Local Government Area (LGA) Strengths  and Assets Collective) commenced meeting in June 2018.

This movement represents a coming together of local services and organisations who recognise that while they are all independantly doing their best for the people and communities they serve, they could do this better, together-for collective impact.

Now 12 months into this journey the Better Together Collective have worked together to establish two place-based pilots within the Swan Hill LGA using local primary schools to springboard into communities and as a platform for unifying services around community identified hopes and needs.


Rural Living Campaign

rural-living-pic-smallBuloke Shire Council in north-central Victoria launched the Rural Living campaign to seek recognition at top government level that unless rural people have access to a basic suite of services, we will see our communities become more and more unliveable. The Rural Advocacy campaign is aimed at ensuring that all Victorians have access to minimum levels of service that enable liveability and safety and that no communities fall below these minimums.
