yourtown leads way to linking Moreton Bay community services and care in the region

Service provider for young people and families, yourtown, has been selected to work with the Health Alliance to lead a place-based collective impact initiative for Moreton Bay.

The aim of the initiative is to improve linkages between the delivery of community services and care in the region.

Through research and community consultation, the pre Collective Impact project lead by yourtown will recommend a model and business case for a Collective Impact activity in the Morten Bay region, similar to the Logan Together initiative in Logan which has produced tangible benefits for the health and wellbeing of children, families and the broader community.

Between 2019 to 2021, The Health Alliance, a joint initiative between Brisbane North PHN and Metro North Health, partnered with collaborative groups including the Moreton Bay Children’s Partnership Group to conduct early research and environmental scanning around the viability of a similar project to Logan Together in Moreton Bay. They found an increasing desire among key stakeholders to work together to deliver services and care in new ways.

This pre-Collective Impact project is in response to the high level of need in the region which has resulted in overlaps and gaps in the many initiatives including programs, networks, community groups and organisations operating to meet the needs of the community. A collective impact approach involves shared goals through integrating health, educational, social and other services to strengthen the community while prioritising children and families.

Collective Impact is a progressive, staged approach to problem-solving that requires multiple organisations from different sectors to align with mutually reinforcing activities. A shared initiative reduces overlap in service provision, and determines key funding priorities.
