The Community Wellbeing Advisory Committee (CWAC) provides strategic advice to Council relating to the actions and priorities of the Inclusive, Diverse and Accessible Policy Framework, specifically towards achieving the three key elements of the City of Palmerston Community Plan:

  • Consider and endorse recommendations from its associated Networks to put forward for Council's consideration.
  • Provide a structure through which the views and interests of the Palmerston community can be articulated for the attention of Council on inclusion matters.
