Sustainable, place-based, whole-of-community collective impact

it's our place!

Our Place is a whole-of-community initiative that works Alongside communities experiencing intergenerational disadvantage. Together, we work to break the cycle of disadvantage to create happier, healthier, more sustainable communities


Our Place tackles complex social issues collectively by bringing together multiple government, non-government, businesses, philanthropists and individuals to deliver social and collective impact initiatives and projects.

Our localised work creates positive social and economic outcomes for the communities we work in. We aim to create increased community pride, neighbourhood cohesion, personal well-being and empowerment for those living in these communities.

Our Place initiatives centre around the collective, local delivery of community-identified outcomes and aspirations within community-created Community Action Plans. Our work is place-based (within a local community), whole-of-community (all issues, all members) and we use a collective impact approach 

Our Place initiatives are currently active in four locations across the Illawarra and Shoalhaven regions of NSW, in the communities of Bellambi, Bundaleer, East Nowra and Warrawong
