Community groups & networks

Community training in action

Waverley is a vibrant and active community with many local networks and groups working towards making our community more sustainable.

We aim to support these groups through partnerships, training, funding and facilitation, wherever possible. If your group or network needs help with a great idea or project, ask us how we might be able to assist.
