The Community Leadership Network

The Community Leadership Network membership comprises of not-for-profit community groups representing their members in the city of Whittlesea. CLN provides member groups with access to resources. We are committed to providing resources and supporting local community groups with leadership training to provide improved community connection.



The formation of the Whittlesea Community Leadership Network was a City of Whittlesea Council initiative and was based on a Pilot Project supported by the City of Whittlesea, coordinated by the Multicultural Unit and Linked to City of Whittlesea Council Plans The scope of the Pilot Project was to develop a community leadership network in line with the Multicultural Plan 2007 – 2011 over two years The project plan was prepared in response to recommendations from community consultations. 


Build strong and diverse communities through leadership and partnership
Aims & Objectives
    • Build and foster solidarity among diverse community groups, encouraging people to visit each other, share cultural practice, compare and contrast ways of being and doing through sharing identity to affirm what it means to be a citizen of Australia.
    • Learn governance strategies while creating and applying their own governance structure. CLN will mobilise hard to reach groups as a conduit to encouraging civic participation.
    • Become an independent advisory group that Council departments can approach for consultations and information. Be a point of contact for the dissemination of information.
    • Be a forum for collaboration, problem solving, networking, information sharing, and referring members to appropriate services. The CLN forum may explore roles and values of leadership and contributing factors offering extra support and resources relating to the topic of leadership.
    • Establish partnerships with organizations that have mentoring programs for leaders and in particular young emerging leaders working with seniors.
    • Encourage participation by diverse community organizations.
    • Facilitate tolerance, sharing of cultural values, to learn the value of cultural leadership..

PCCC is a three year strategic framework for our plan through which WCLN will carry out its programs and activities focusing on developing skills and expertise across the entire Not-For-Profit community organizations in Whittlesea in particular and in Victoria, in general.  PCCC focuses on developing human capital within the social enterprises sector with a view to enhance leadership performance and efficient community management as a whole. PCCC will be shaping the very essence and direction of WCLN in line with 1981 Incorporation ACT



WLCN strives to build a diplomatic, supportive and a long lasting rapport with a wide range of communities groups focusing on the most marginalised community.  To achieve our targeted goals we weave strong partnerships with government, non-government, philanthropic and private organisations to share the responsibility of building sustainable communities.
