Community Partnership Program

Is your community group or organisation interested in building connections, cultural learning, promoting mutual respect and partnering with diverse groups on a shared project? 

Be a part of the award-winning Melton City Council Community Partnership Program (CPP)! It supports partnerships between community groups that benefit the broader community.

The partnership program currently offers two streams:

  • Project Stream
  • Cultural Exchange Workshop Stream

Organisations can be involved in one or both streams of activity based on their capacity and resources. 

Project Stream
The organisation/group work together with one or more partners on a project.  We will provide relevant resources and support for the smooth delivery of the project.

Cultural Exchange Workshop Stream
The collaborating organisations showcase their culture through food, dance, arts and craft, story sharing etc. The organisations take turns to host workshops. The approach undertaken can be informal or formal. The cultural exchange workshops may receive one-time in-kind venue hire contribution when using Council owned facilities.
