COMMUNITY ACTION

WE ARE ALWAYS GROWING GO GOLDFIELDS

collaborative table

The Go Goldfields Collaborative Table brings together leaders from all parts of the community to govern, lead and hold the work. Members are drawn from across the municipality, and the State. These include; community and business leaders, service leaders, government representatives, peak body and research institution representatives.

Table members advocate for change within their organisations and circles of influence. They ask community and colleagues for their ideas and opinions and bring that feedback to the Table. They use their insights and passion to inform the work of Go Goldfields and drive positive change where it is most needed, and desired. Table members model the collaborative behaviour, can-do attitude and the passion asked of all the members of Go Goldfields and more broadly of the Central Goldfields community.

The breadth of our Collaborative Partners sitting around our Collaborative Tale and Impact Area networks ensures authentic and meaningful outcomes. The following definitions help define the people who make up our membership groups;

PEOPLE WITH LIVED EXPERIENCE want to make a difference to others and have the first-hand knowledge that Go Goldfields needs. They have something to say and want to make a positive change for those who live, work and play within their community.

COMMUNITY AND BUSINESS LEADERS also want to make a difference to others. They have the skills, local contacts, work and life experiences that can help children, youth and families reach their full potential. Community and business leaders are committed to working with others to add to the strengths of our community.

SERVICE LEADERS are paid workers who are responsible for the development and delivery of services and education for children, youth or families. They have knowledge of the Central Goldfields Shire and are also committed to working with Go Goldfields to add to the strengths of our community.

DECISION MAKERS are also paid workers who make decisions about the sharing and use of resources in our community to benefit children, youth or families. They are likely to be senior government officials who know the Central Goldfields Shire well and are committed to working with Go Goldfields to bring about positive change in our community.
