Our collective voice

Lifting up residents’ voices

Mary Hajistassi is Backbone Leader of South Australia’s Together in the South, an Opportunity Child partner community.

“Here at Together in the South, we’re about action. Action to ensure that every child is safe, healthy, active, ready to learn and engaging positively.

Our steering group made the decision to focus on one strategy in 2018: to increase attendance and ongoing participation in playgroups. This strategic focus is based on data commissioned by community partner Playgroup SA and community consultation.
