Community Development Queensland Connections
QSEC CEO Elise Parups and President Richard Warner recently presented to the Community Development Queensland Network. Discussions focussed on ways social enterprises and grassroots community development works together to build community resilience and respond to local economic and social difficulties. CD workers are well placed in many regional areas in neighbourhood centres and in local government organisations to observe the real issues facing communities. It was great to see a strong connection to social enterprise ideas and we will continue to look for opportunities to collaborate.
