Knox is a place to call home. Our community is strong, healthy and we support and respect each other.

This Key Direction is about:

  • Making time to look after ourselves, physically and mentally
  • Maintaining connections with others – social, cultural and spiritual
  • Volunteering time or join community groups
  • Showing respect, embracing differences and supporting others
  • Ensuring there are good quality support services for those most in need
  • Providing safe spaces for those most vulnerable.

Some of the initiatives that Council will undertake to contribute to this Key Direction are:

  • Respond to emerging social and health issues caused by the COVID‐19 pandemic.
  • Prioritise mental health and wellbeing initiatives by focusing on community partnerships and collective impact
  • Contribute to the collective efforts in preventing and responding to family violence.
  • Work in partnership with local First Nations people, relevant services and key networks to progress Reconciliation.
