Between 2017 and 2019, Growing Lachlan (Condobolin and Lake Cargelligo) and Dubbo CAPP Group worked together The Australian Centre for Social Innovation to co-design a capability framework, inform these resources and prototype a new way of working together to support outcomes in the community. The Regional Innovators Network included coaching, peer learning sessions and peer-to-peer support.
The resources on this platform are based around the co-design and innovation capabilities that have been useful in community-led innovation – so we wanted to share them with you here. They include videos from our network sessions and stories that members of the network shared together with co-design and innovation mindsets, skills and process capabilities.
The work was funded by the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation (VFFF) and Dusseldorp Forum.
If you want to know more about how we used these tools in our communities you can read our case study about Dubbo or Growing Lachlan.
“I haven’t felt more motivated or clear about our/my direction since I started working with the TACSI team. I’m kindly challenged throughout mentoring to be concise/clear and to really think about the role I play in all of this – the impacts it has and the way we go about doing what we do on a daily basis. It’s interesting because depending on where I am at with projects – depends on where I feel my capability sits… TACSI helps me explore this further and have confidence in moving forward.”
“I don’t even know how to put it in words, all the tools and tips that TACSI have shared with us are so valuable! I already started to put into practice the service mapping from the young people point of view and the stakeholder mapping. We are going to start engaging with young people at school.”
