Event description
An introductory workshop to developing and implementing communication-based projects aiming to address community health and social issues.

About this Event

  • Do you want to run a campaign to raise community awareness of an issue?
  • Are you planning projects to change community behaviours around a health or social issue?
  • Are you involved in projects to end violence or prejudice, or that aim to improve health-seeking behaviours in a community?

The Community Capacity Building Team is offering FREE short workshops for local community workers. Using a results-based project management framework, each workshop will cover key concepts for planning effective communication projects or strategies that intend to raise awareness, change attitudes and behaviours, in order to achieve positive change in communities. 

Content includes presentations by the facilitator on theoretical frameworks and recommended approaches, and uses real-life examples as well as exercises to embed understanding. 

This workshop is in-person (face-to-face), and will follow COVID-Safe protocols* to ensure the safety of everyone (see further information on this below). Two other workshops are available online in February and April.

We take registrations seriously, and if you do not attend without an apology you may not be able to register for future workshops of Council.
