Promoting local action through place-based initiatives

Promoting local action through place-based initiatives

Several place-based projects in Melbourne’s west have collaborated to produce a report on the many learnings and examples from their community focused initiatives.

Place-based initiatives are all about improving health and wellbeing through community-led action.

A new report has recently been released looking at four different projects from Melbourne western suburbs and how they’ve each approached a place-based design. Affirming how there is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to building the capacity and improving the health outcomes of local residents.

Place-based Initiatives in the West: Highlighting Promising Practice includes learnings and examples from Linking Melton South, Our3021, the Brooklyn and Altona North Community Strengthening project and Revitalising Braybrook.

All these projects have worked hard to impact the lives of the people that work, live, learn or play in their area.

Join the conversation on place-based initiatives with us during this launch, using the tag #placebased. This offers a great opportunity for others to share examples of how they have approached place-based work.

For further information on the place-based initiatives in the West see their website.
