The Fraser Coast Community Social Plan helps us to understand what contributes to our unique lifestyle and outline some actions needed as we strive for the best possible social outcomes for the Fraser Coast Community. It provides a longer-term view of the social direction of our community and identifies short term activities and goals to help us achieve the vision.

Our Social Plan has been developed to highlight our unique lifestyle and guide us to strive for the best possible outcomes for the Fraser Coast  community. This Social Plan was developed through a partnership between the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre and Fraser Coast Regional Council utilising funding provided by the Australian government’s Building Better Regions Program.

Between March and August 2018 there were a number of community consultations across the Fraser Coast community. From these consultations the following five key themes have been identified:

  1. Diverse Community

  2. Community Health

  3. Aging Community

  4. Youth and Family

  5. Natural Environment

A Social Plan reflects the social needs and aspirations of a community and outlines ways in which to respond to these. It provides a platform for individuals, organisations and government agencies to work together in building resilient and vibrant communities.

Our plan outlines current and emerging social needs of our community and identifies strategies to respond to these to plan for the future. These strategies encompass both short and longer term actions. The social needs are integrated with economic, cultural and governance issues. It will be used to advocate for additional resources that
meet the needs of our community.
