Community Strengthening Data Project

Community Strengthening Data Project

Project Objectives

LCSA has been funded by Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) to develop a Community Strengthening Data Set that adds to and complements DEX compliance data collated under the Targeted Early Intervention (TEI) Program and showcases activities that are designed to build strong and resilient communities, preventing issues from arising in the first place.

Further objectives of the project are to:

  • Develop an IT solution for collecting Community Strengthening Data including data on social capital, service collaboration and sector development
  • Establish a co-design process working with a Project Reference Group and at least 2 pilot site groups
  • Make recommendations to DCJ for further implementation of the project, and ultimately
  • Curate and present a Community Strengthening Data Report to both the sector and DCJ

LCSA is the lead agency and will work in partnership with Fams to implement the project. The DCJ Central Office (TEI Team) are key partners to ensure all processes fit together and are engaged in all aspects of the project.
