Leaders meet to find ways to help Lismore community

THE value of community health and wellbeing to the social fabric and economy of Lismore was the focus of yesterday's Lismore Leaders Group breakfast at Invercauld House.

Hosted by Lismore City Council, the event saw leaders from the health, education, and community sectors come together alongside heads of business, councillors and council staff.

Speakers included Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell, Professor Iain Graham from SCU, community sector leaders Tony Davies and George Mudford, and Chris Clarke from Medicare Local.

Mr Davies, the Northern Rivers Social Development Council CEO, said the community sector, traditionally reliant on government funding, needed to seek partnerships with the private sector.

He said social development and economic development were mutually beneficial.
