Community Chooses Grit and Resilience Priorities

Community members have cast their votes to set the priorities for the Grit and Resilience Program.

Four initial priorities emerged from the first round of community consultation, with a recent survey helping to choose which two of those priorities will be acted on.

“We are so excited to be able to present back to the Wangaratta Community their priorities for the Grit and Resilience Program,” Program Coordinator of the Grit and Resilience Program Bek Nash-Webster said.

With a total of 242 people voting, the results are as follows:

  • Creating Connections with 38% of the votes
  • Involving and Including with 31%
  • Communicating and sharing stories with 16%
  • Growing leaders with 15%

Working parties will now be established for ‘Creating Connections’ and ‘Involving and Including’ to start enacting these priorities.

“The Grit and Resilience program would like to thank everyone that voted and completed the survey in June this year,” Ms Nash Webster said.

“All members who have indicated that they would like to work on these priorities will be contacted shortly so we can get started.”
