We are seeking local community members to join one of our two Community Reference Groups.

What is a Community Reference Group?

The purpose of a Community Reference Group is to offer reflection and feedback on the needs and views of the community.

Our Community Reference Group meets across Sunbury and the Macedon Ranges and is made up of a diverse group of people from these communities.

Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health regularly consults the community to gather important feedback about our services that we can use in program development and strategic planning.

Membership of the Community Reference Groups is voluntary however, we do ask for commitment to attend meetings over a two-year period if possible.

The Community Reference Group meets four times per year on a Wednesday.  We meet online and in person.  The purpose of these meetings is for members of the community to:

  • Inform us of community concerns and interests.
  • Give feedback on our communications and messages to the community.
  • Advise on new program or project developments.
  • Help us to improve the quality of existing programs and service.
  • Identify new opportunities for community participation.
  • Contribute to the development of advocacy and activism campaigns.

Who can join?

Anyone can join the Community Reference Group.

Ideally, you will either have received services from Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health or have a strong connection to the communities which we serve.

It is important that you join as an individual, and not as a representative of another community group or club.

The Community Reference Group meets with representatives from the Board and senior staff at Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health. The group is a safe and welcoming place for community contributions.
