Peel Community Development Group Membership Update
The Peel Community Development Group (PCDG) is a not-for-profit organisation that works to support and strengthen a positive and sustainable community development process in the Peel region, whilst advocating for and supporting the work of the community sector.
PCDG is run by a committed volunteer board with members who each bring a diverse range of skills,experience and local knowledge to assist the PCDG in its various projects and activities.
In recent years, the PCDG has focussed on -
Providing professional development opportunities for community sector practitioners through hosting local conferences and information sessions with high profile speakers and quality presentations at an affordable price
Facilitating dialogue, research and planning across the sector to address transitional housing needs for families with young children
Developing and leading the Peel Says No To Violence Project in partnership with Peel Community Legal Service, Allambee Counselling, Peel Youth Services and Pat Thomas House
Maintaining communication with Members of Parliament who represent our region and ensuring the voice of the community and sector is heard
Working with the five local governments within the region, Peel Development Commission, Regional Development Australia Peel and the Peel Harvey Catchment Council through our participation in the Peel Regional Leaders Forum to provide a community perspective to collective regional issues and projects
Attracting a broader cross section of Peel people to the PCDG board including from Waroona and Serpentine
Increasing the flow of information to our community sector via electronic newsletters and an improved Facebook presence (new in 2017!)
An important part of what we do is connecting with the community sector in Peel to understand the issues and challenges faced, and using our networks to advocate for the needs of the region. In order to continue this work, we need your comminuted support through membership of the PCDG and participation in our dialogue, projects and events.
