We worked with Mackay Regional Council and stakeholders to develop the 2017 Mackay Region Community Development Strategy. This included an extensive engagement and co-design process to create a community-driven strategy and two-year action plan.

As part of the project we undertook a desktop review and report of best practice community development approaches and community-driven development initiatives.

We gained insights and input from the community and stakeholders using qualitative in-depth interviews, community surveys and the facilitation of a co-design workshop to develop the new strategy with stakeholders. Participants were involved in identifying and prioritising actions, as well as what the Community Development Strategy should cover for a collective future for the region.
