Community Leadership Program

We realise that practical and focused activities are needed to support development in our area. We offer a number of training and capacity-building sessions and programs to our community groups, small organisations and you – if you’re interested.

Brimbank Community Leadership Program,  10 May – 28 June

Do you want to make your community a better place? Do you do things to improve the well being of your community?

Our Community Leadership Program aims to build participants’ understanding and connection with what we do and why. You'll learn how you can positively influence Council’s activities in policy and program development and implementation to improve health and wellbeing.

 Applications are now closed.

 Planning is underway for the next Community Leadership Program. Check the website for further updates or contact:
