LAUNCESTON RECONNECTED FORUM BUILDS COMMUNITY

Today, we held a terrific ‘Reconnected’ roundtable with Launceston charities and not-for-profits, exchanging ideas to boost social capital and community engagement. 

Recent decades have seen a decline in the share of Australians joining community groups, playing organised sports, attending church or joining a union. 

Through our forums, Labor is working to promote social capital, and share ideas about how to reverse the trend of declining social capital.

Today‘s was the eighth Reconnected Roundtable, following on from successful forums in Adelaide, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Darwin.

The local groups who joined today‘s conversation included:

  • Launceston Community Legal Centre
  • Migrant Resource Centre Inc
  • Volunteering Tasmania
  • Headspace Launceston
  • Launceston PCYC

We are grateful to the Launceston charities and not-for-profits who brought their energy, ideas and enthusiasm to today’s conversation.
