In 2007, in partnership with Belconnen Community Services, we authored a community survey and report known as “Living on the Edge”. It was based on the ABS data for the surrounding suburbs, and a broader community survey regarding Health, Education and Community services.
It has been and remains a helpful insight into the community of West Belconnen at the time, and has been the basis for several organisations in their planning of service delivery. It has been used by the ACT and Australian Governments in its response to the issues of the local community (see, for example, here, here and here)
UnitingCare Kippax is currently engaged in commissioning a follow up survey.
