Support and resources for community groups and leaders

Adelaide Hills Council is committed to providing opportunities for community groups and leaders to connect and build a region that is engaged, empowered, and dynamic. We have a suite of resources to help build the capacity of local groups, including an official workshop program, presentations, and printable resources.

Supporting Community Groups and Leaders Workshop Program 2018
Our workshop program is ideal for committee members to attend and learn about specific topics related to their role within the group, or to build skills to offer to the broader community.

If hearing about a particular topic at one of your regular committee meetings would be more beneficial, Council staff are available to present to your community group on certain topics. If there is a topic you are interested in that is not listed below, please let us know and we'll investigate whether a presentation can be developed.

  • Social media and communications
  • Events and fundraising

Two to four weeks' notice is preferred in order to confirm staff scheduling. Please contact the Communications and Events team on (08) 8408 0400 or to find out more and book.

Printable resources
Coming in 2019. Will include Q&As, presentations for your use and links to other useful information.

Event planning and management
Many community groups hold events of varying sizes as ways to connect with local residents, meet like-minded people, fundraise, or promote their services. We have a comprehensive toolkit for event organisers that is perfect for the novice, and a good reference even for those people with some event experience. Click here to go to our Events and Venue Hire page to see all of the information available (opens in a new tab).
