Empowering Communities

  • SEVA Empowering Communities Project was aimed at producing a collaborative resource for community development, utilising the strengths and assets within the target communities. Broadly, the objective of the project was to address the issue of social exclusion particularly of recent migrants and refugees through community capacity building. The collaborative resource focussed on building leadership, developing and nurturing local champions and role models. Ultimately it is about empowerment by providing people with resources, opportunities, knowledge and skills to increase their capacity.
