About CMS community development programs

Our community development programs enhance the experience of families in our community. We partner with local people, communities and organisations to create new programs and improve existing ones.

We embrace the principles of:

  • collaboration—working together
  • participation—working with many
  • empowerment—taking charge
  • equity—ensuring fairness
  • social justice—equal rights and opportunities.

Community development helps make our community stronger and enables us to reach our potential. It involves community members saying what they need and coming up with solutions.

Connecting families to their communities

We wish to acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which CMS and its service are located, and their Elders past and present.
