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

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.

Interested? If you're 18 years old or over and live, work or study in Brimbank, you're invited to grow your community leadership skills by participating in a structured and interactive Community Leadership Program.
