  • Improved access to health and community services in the local area
  • Improved coordination of the health and community services in the local area
  • Improved health literacy of the community and member organisations
  • Ensuring people are referred to the right service, in the right place at the right time

The locally identified needs will be addressed by:

  • Improving service provider and community members’ knowledge of services
  • Communication through providing direct information and support in an accessible way
  • Building connection between services.
