Roadmap 2014-2020

A shared vision for the future of the community services industry in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven 2014-2020

On 28 August 2014 approximately 120 leaders from the community services sector, government and education in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven came together for a one day workshop aimed at developing a shared vision for the future of the industry. Participants discussed their ambitions for the sector and mapped the routes to achieving this vision.

Participant’s valuable feedback was used to develop a clear plan for the future including a ‘Roadmap for the Future of Community Services in the Illawarra’ that detailed the steps required to work towards the Illawarra and Shoalhaven being an example of regional excellence in community/human service delivery. Six key action areas were highlighted

  1. Support collaborative practice
  2. Develop  a sustainable, integrated and skilled workforce
  3. Establish communities of practice to encourage practice excellence
  4. Enhance regional networking opportunities
  5. Develop a social innovation incubator
  6. Strengthen regional commitment to social enterprise

In April 2016 the Illawarra Forum reviewed the Roadmap and created an update that highlights initiatives in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven.
