Community driven transformation: Case Studies

Four communities, from disparate parts of Australia, are demonstrating how to increase life opportunities for vulnerable young people so that they and future generations thrive.

Doveton, Bourke, Logan and Kabulwarnamyo are four communities building new community structures and collaborative partnerships with government, non-government, philanthropy, business and academia that allow for a realignment and smarter use of public resources.

These four community-based initiatives joined forces as part of a three-year process called the ‘Festival of Change’ in May 2017.

Supported by Dusseldorp Forum, these groups recognised their individual, ground-breaking work together formed a social change movement with the ability to address deep structural causes of disadvantage and rebuild thriving communities.
