Community Resilience is one of the five strategic pillars of the Multicultural NSW Strategic Plan 2021- 2025, Stronger Together. Drawing inspiration from the resilience and cohesion of the people of NSW, we define our goal under the Community Resilience pillar as:
‘Expanding robust relationships that inspire people to foster social cohesion, stand united against divisive forces and come together in times of need.’
Community Resilience and Response Plan (COMPLAN)
The NSW Community Resilience and Response Plan (COMPLAN) aims to maintain and promote community harmony, build community resilience and better equip us to prevent, limit, withstand, respond to and recover from situations that threaten community harmony in NSW.
Community Partnership Action Program (COMPACT)
The COMPACT (Community Partnership Action) Program was inspired by the way the people of NSW came together after the Martin Place siege in Sydney in December 2014. The message from our community was clear: We stand united. We – all of us together – will not let extremists divide us.
COMPACT has since grown to become a state-wide network of community partners and allies who are standing united against hate. COMPACT has inspired and empowered more than 50,000 young people as champions for community harmony.
