Australian Social Inclusion Board Meeting in Wyong
The most recent Australian Social Inclusion Board meeting was held in Wyong, NSW, in November 2012.
The Board met with the Wyong Local Advisory Group who have developed a strategic plan to improve the lives of the community’s most disadvantaged people.
The Wyong Local Advisory Group was established as part of the Federal Government’s Better Futures, Local Solutions initiative and officially launched their strategic plan at an event attended by the Board.
The plan aims to help young parents, jobless families and the long term unemployed, to improve their chances of getting paid work and providing a better future for themselves and their families.
Ms Lin Hatfield Dodds, Chair of the Australian Social Inclusion Board spoke at the launch and said she chose Wyong for the Board meeting so members could visit some of the place-based initiatives in the area and particularly see the great work the Wyong community is doing to increase levels of social inclusion.
