September 2022 - April 2023

Council is partnering with Make A Change Australia, bringing the Expand Your Impact program to the region.

Expand Your Impact encourages people to think a little differently and grow success in any area of life.

Participation can be via online workshops, subscribing to receive resources, joining a supportive network, or all of these opportunities rolled into one.

Participation is free, and all residents, volunteers, businesses and organisations in Surf Coast Shire are invited to benefit. The program is suitable for ages 16 years and over.

It explores six key areas useful for making change happen:

  • Vision: Discovering and rediscovering ‘what lights you up?’
  • Projects: Giving thoughts and ideas the structure to ‘make them happen’
  • Story: Creating your compelling narrative to ‘engage others’
  • Team: Building networks, growing communities and enlisting ‘support’
  • People: Working together effectively for ‘greater outcomes’
  • Digital Tools: Navigating the world online with ‘impact’
