Implementing Our Place

Our Place Illawarra Shoalhaven is an initiative of llawarra Shoalhaven Social Investments (ISSIT), a virtual organisation supported by a number of government and non-government agencies.

ISSIT is a formalised structure that supports and enables Our Place's social and collective impact initiatives.

Our Place Illawarra Shoalhaven work is collectively undertaken by an Implementation Group of local agencies and organisations, enabled and driven by a Backbone Team, guided and authorised by an Executive Advisory Board, and funded and resourced by local stakeholders.

Membership of ISSIT requires an innovative, open, collaborative mindset, to ensure sustainable, long-term, positive social and economic impact of Our Place work.
