We're committed to social justice, and we support the work of the Brimbank Social Justice Coalition.
This Coalition brings together the views, energy and resources of local agencies, community groups and our residents; all committed to principles of access, equity, community participation and human rights to plan, lead and advocate in partnership with the local community.
The Coalition recognises that many of our residents may face difficulties, especially when disadvantaged by high levels of poverty and a lack of access to opportunities, services and support.
Our particular areas of focus, in our Social Justice Coalition, are:
- Access to public transport
- Levels of affordable and accessible housing
- Opportunities for industry, employment and education.
