CityLink Neighbourhood Connections
CityLink Neighbourhood Connections is a program designed to help diverse groups form a connection with their communities.
Since July 2009, Bronwyn Riddell the Program Co-ordinator, has organised over 25 events on behalf of CityLink's community program, aimed at bringing members of the municipalities of Melbourne, Moonee Valley, Moreland and Hume together.
The program focuses on school students, the elderly, those with disabilities and people from non-English speaking backgrounds.
Planting days, school presentations, community festivals, senior's week, walking groups, family days out and Clean Up Australia Day are among some of the valuable experiences the CityLink Neighbourhood Connections program has offered these communities.
The past year has seen CityLink's community program achieve the following noteworthy results:
