  • Identify, understand and address issues that affect local community health and safety.
  • Assist the community learn practical ways to improve personal and home security.
  • Improve community knowledge regarding crime prevention, detection and reporting.
  • Promote community wellbeing, increased feelings of safety and
  • Improve community harmony by increasing communication and collaboration.

Acknowledging our place in history

We believe that it’s essential to improve recognition of the traditional owners along with our rich colonial past. To achieve this we publish historical and landmark information on an interactive timeline which outlines events over time. We welcome comments and suggestions to add more content that will enhance the history timeline.

Publicising Community, Service Group and Gov. activities

We acknowledge the great work being done by Community, Service groups and Government in our region. We are happy to help promote their programs in order to increase participation for the benefit of the people in the Derwent Valley.
