About the Community Development Division

Children at schoolThe Community Development Division brings together a number of related activities that have a focus on improving the quality of life of all Tasmanians, building community capacity, addressing social disadvantage and facilitating active citizenship.

As a whole the Division works by:

  • Providing policy advice to the Premier and relevant Ministers about the impact of policy decisions, services or programs upon communities
  • Leading whole-of-Government policy initiatives
  • Developing effective community engagement models for Government
  • Supporting peak bodies and advisory structures which can act as a link between particular communities and Government
  • Engaging directly with communities, where necessary, to find out about the impact of Government policy, to identify emerging issues or to assist communities to ‘navigate’ Government services and programs
  • Supporting other Government agencies to improve their service delivery to Tasmanians, and in particular to those population groups who are often poorly served or excluded.

The work of the Division is fundamental to implementing Tasmania Together, the community's plan for the social, economic and environmental future of the State.

The Community Development Division recognises and values the important role that local government, non-government community organisations and community groups play in delivering projects, programs and events that support Tasmanian communities.
