Community Development

CHL has a desire to establish a role in community development that extends from our mission statement:

“Assisting the development and sustainability of strong communities with social diversity by fostering community building initiatives to improve the health and well-being of disadvantaged people.”

CHL has a strong community development approach to delivering services.

Our Community Development Approach includes:

  • Community ownership of initiated activities, projects or services through community participation and contribution;
  • Increased social cohesion and positive relationships;
  • Stronger, more supportive and safer communities;
  • Greater opportunities and access to employment, education, skills building and social activities;
  • Improved amenity and character of the areas where there is a high concentration of CHL housing.
CHL has developed a Community Development Framework. It describes how community development will be developed and delivered across our organization.

  • Sports and exercise programs to improve health and wellbeing of disadvantaged people;
  • Programs to educate people on healthy eating;
  • Training programs to assist in creating employment;
  • Recreation programs to improve life skills and stimulate wellbeing.
