Derwent Valley Jobs Survey: We Need Your Local Knowledge

We all know there are barriers to employment and work opportunities in the Derwent Valley.

We want to figure out how we can take those barriers down, but to do that we need your help.

The Community Innovation and Investment Project (CIIP) is about getting local people to make the decisions about the future of employment in their region.

The first step of the project starts right here. We need to know what works and what doesn’t right now, and we want to know your big ideas for the future.

The initial survey will guide you through a range of questions. Don’t be afraid to be honest, or creative.

Project manager Amy Bailey said that to achieve real lasting change in regional areas we must look at new ways of doing things.

“We want to help you build a community with strong employment opportunities, to do that we need your input because local people know their communities best,” Ms Bailey said.

“We know you’re busy and appreciate your time is valuable so we’ll make the best use of the time you commit to the project.”

After we have gathered your thoughts, we will group your ideas into themes and bring them back to the community as a group to decide which ones might work best.

From there, we will help the community group to turn these ideas into action.

2018 Tasmania Report: Time to Turn it Around
