Today we held the Annual PCDG Planning day at the beautiful Redgum Retreat in Dwellingup, facilitated by the amazing Megan Worsdell from WACOSS. The day began reflecting on our achievements of 2014, including our incredibly successful PCDG Conference in February; initiating the Housing Security Project; and representing the community sector in both the Peel Leaders Forum and the Peel Development Commission. With a number of new board members, we are setting our sights forward towards what is looking to be a great year in 2015.
The Housing Security Roundtable set for March 6th will bring together up to 60 representatives from various community organisations, and together will work towards creating an agreed upon solution for housing affordability and homelessness in the Peel Region.
The PCDG Conference for 2015 will once again be held in the Peel Region, hosting speakers of international standing, and providing great networking opportunities across the community sector.
We are also looking to host a number of community sector workshops, and plan to further develop our online presence through both our new website and social media.
This year the PCDG’s broad aims are to provide ‘bricks and mortar’ solutions for housing security in the Peel Region; to continue our work in building resilience within the community sector; and to strengthen connections within the existing community network, working more closely with a number of advisors.
