Community Conversations

The Community Hub is interested in what is important to the people living in the Lithgow LGA. The Hub regularly attends events on the street to ASK people about their hopes and aspirations for the community and runs in depth Community Conversations to find out what is important to the people who live here.

This information is used to create public knowledge about how the community feels and informs our programs and practice.

For more information call Leanne on (02) 6354 5910.
