Under a Shorten Government, the Labor Community Sector Partnership will meet regularly to inform and advise on the best approaches to tackling new and emerging community issues. Since going into Opposition, we’ve continued to work on ways to strengthen civil society. One of the vehicles for this is Labor’s Community Sector Partnership, which met for the first time in April 2015.
It brings together leaders from the community sector to outline priorities for social policy reform and set a new agenda for working together to deliver positive social change.
The partnership is about providing a mechanism for Government and the community sector to work together to design, implement and deliver policy. It is an important first step in developing new approaches to solving complex problems.
