The Brisbane LLA adopts methods from community development and collective impact approaches. We listen to our members and work to establish local initiatives driven by local organisations.
We host Brisbane Region Quarterly Meetings. These are held to provide information, networking, working group updates and stimulate discussion and member involvement in broad systemic issues that LLA may be able to assist with addressing. Our monthly working groups currently meet to discuss the following areas:
Brisbane North: Engaging families in Early Education.
Brisbane South: Developing a quick reference guide for family support practitioners working with parents who use methamphetamine.
Brisbane South West: Improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children’s transitions to prep.
Brisbane South West: Improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people’s transitions to high school.
Responses to Young People: Developing an Embedded DV specialist workers/knowledge in services to young people
Responses to Young People: Developing a mobile mental health service for young people
Responses to Young People: Reducing rental prejudice by increasing awareness of youth homelessness
Brisbane North: Family Support Collective.
Brisbane South Family Support Collective (includes the South West region): Our working group objectives are informed by local needs, driven and resourced by the commitment of local organisations and government departments.
