Our vision is opportunity, equity and quality of life for everyone in our community.
Disrupting the cycle of disadvantage is a long-term social endeavour and requires a whole-of-community response.
To create a thriving future for our region, our focus areas have been identified by community as:
Our families have access to life’s basics, feel independent, and have purpose
Our children feel safe, happy and loved, growing up at home with their families
Our children are starting school ready to learn and on track to thrive
By focusing on our families and enabling and supporting parents to provide a happy, healthy, and nurturing home environment, we can all help provide a great start for our children.
Ensuring our families have access to the right supports at the right time, requires a healthy, proactive supports system and a responsive, supportive community.
The work of Gladstone Region engaging in action Together is directed by a community-led strategy including the Theory of Change which identifies the long-term vision and objectives of the work and the community-designed and owned Gladstone Region Wellbeing Action Plan, which maps out how we, as a community, will collectively improve early supports, increase service system integration, and empower and increase opportunities for our local children and families to thrive.
