A bit about Burnie Works
Burnie Works is a place based Collective Impact initiative developing in Burnie. The focus of the framework is to create long term positive change in the community in the areas of education, families and employment. Burnie has a culture of long term intergenerational unemployment, with statistics showing a high rate of unemployment and a contrasting high job vacancy rate in the area.
This complex problem requires Burnie to build on the collaborative work already happening and target the issue from multiple areas including education, health, social disadvantage and youth unemployment. By doing this Burnie aims to create long term change in community and culture, to create a vibrant, adaptable community as envisaged by the Making Burnie 2030 community strategic plan.
