Our Community Engagement Teams are currently working on a variety of issues.  You can participate in these actions as a volunteer, community resident or by participating as an organizer.  We select issues based on the interest of the residents of the communities we serve.  


If you would like to become a community organizer, we suggest you register for the Leadership Training program.  We also have connections with other leadership and Fellows Leader programs which can teach or enhance leadership skills.

OFA Fellows Leaders and AWOFINC Team Leaders provide guidance on the issues to consider when planning and designing community engagement.  We make sure it focuses on quality and effectiveness, process planning and designing engagement tailored to the particular issue, level of participation to be achieved, timeframe and range of stakeholders affected. 

Community engagement works best where it is an ongoing cumulative process enabling relationships and trust to build and strengthen over time. Individual engagement events are planned and designed with this in mind and aim to contribute to the overall aims of the engagement process. Community or voluntary groups participate at a range of levels – from providing advice to co-designing the process and from undertaking some aspects of the engagement to delivering projects to meet some of the outcomes.
