The Karen Community Plan 2017-2021 has been developed with substantial consultation across a wide range of stakeholders in the Nhill, Hindmarsh and wider Wimmera community. Aligning with the Hindmarsh Shire Council Plan 2017 – 2021, this plan will continue the long term strategic direction for Council to develop a thriving local economy through increased capacity and leadership within the Karen community of Nhill.
The key aim of the Karen Community Plan 2017-2021 is to build on the actions of the 2014 plan and support the Karen community in increasing their access to settlement services at a local and regional level, developing their leaders with training and education opportunities, increasing employment opportunities through employment and business development and providing new opportunities in sport, recreation, arts and cultural activities.
Empowering the Karen community through continued learning, via training opportunities and mentoring support will see increased capacity throughout the Nhill and Hindmarsh community in areas such as hospitality, tourism, health and agriculture.
