Community engagement, collaboration and support are central to our strategy and daily activity.

SEQ Catchments is well placed to facilitate community groups, schools, businesses and local government to work together and supports projects and plans to address local landscape sustainability issues.

Community

Our structure maximises the opportunity for community engagement and input.
 
The SEQ Catchments Members’ Association (SEQCMA) has over 160 member groups from a variety of community and industry sectors (including Landcare groups and Local Government).
  
Our Community Partnership Managers enjoy strong local networks and informal connections within the community in which they operate and listen to and converse with landholders and local groups about on ground local issues on a daily basis.

Collaboration

Like us, most landowners want to protect our natural assets for future generations.

Our core activity is to engage, mobilise, and inform landowners, the people who make the decisions on land use and continue to invest their time and effort in improving our landscape. 
 
We provide advice, community support and access to funding and information to help local groups and landowners to carry out work on the ground.

Support

We support the community across a number of areas, including:
 
  • property planning advice
  • free training and workshops 
  • provide access to information, advice and support
  • provision of small grants
  • sourcing project and community investment from the corporate and government sectors
  • facilitating indigenous engagement in planning and delivery of projects.
