CANs

Community Action Networks
Community Action Networks (CANs) bring together representatives from key organisations in a local region to work together in meeting the complex needs of young people who are at risk of disengaging from education. CAN meetings are convened and facilitated by Wimmera Southern Mallee LLEN.
Any individuals or representatives of organisations who have an interest in supporting young people in their local community are welcome to attend CAN meetings. Organisations represented at CANs include Wimmera Uniting Care, Grampians Community Health, West Wimmera Health Service, Wimmera Health Care Group, Department of Health and Human Services, Federation University, Skillinvest, Centre for Participation, Job Services Australia providers, Centrelink, Victoria Police, Neighbourhood Houses and Community Centres, Local Government youth workers and school personnel.

CAN meetings are usually held four times a year (once each school term) in each location where a CAN has been established. Community Action Networks have been established in Dimboola, Edenhope, Murtoa, Warracknabeal, Nhill and Horsham. In addition to the Horsham CAN, there is a Koorie CAN which also meets in Horsham to address the specific needs of Koorie young people in the local community.
If you would like to be included on the mailing list to recieve meeting invitations and minutes of meetings, please contact the Wimmera Southern Mallee LLEN Office. Please specify which of the seven CAN mailing lists you wish to be included in. (Dimboola CAN, Edenhope CAN, Murtoa CAN, Horsham CAN, Warracknabeal CAN, Nhill CAN, Koorie CAN)
