ComCom National Forum Pilot Community - Sydney's Northern Beaches!

CCNB Meet Up.jpg

November 30, 2017

Here are some reflections from one of the first NCCF meetings.
The GroundSwell team met Stephen and Marika (from Community Care Northern Beaches) at the NSW State Library to dream up Compassionate Communities and how that might look in Sydney's Northern Beaches.

It was a great discussion covering a lot of ground - what is compassionate communities? How will it work in this community? How do we tackle the challenge of harnessing community interest without being too prescriptive as to what the project will look like?

The Northern Beaches GroundBreakers are important to the project as it will be a bit of a testing ground for us in terms of initial events and resources we develop. 
They will be having their first Community meeting to launch this work on Thursday the 12th of April at Dee Why RSL.
