  • Enhancing employment outcomes, particularly for those that experience barriers to participation in the workforce.
  • Affordable housing initiatives and supporting tenants
  • Increase the liveability of neighbourhoods and place-based connectedness eg neighbourhood and youth drop-in centres or creative arts/cultural initiatives.
  • Preventing domestic violence
  • Increasing community safety and preventing crime eg addressing drug and alcohol related issues
  • Ensuring public safety (eg water/surf safety, fires, crime)
  • Raising awareness and providing community education on a range of important social issues
