4 October 2016 Show You Care

‘We Care Day’ is another opportunity for you to show you care about the future and community of Coffs Harbour.

Helping shape the future of Coffs Harbour is the aim of MyCoffs - a campaign to capture the goals and aspirations of the whole community to create a vision for how we want to be living in the future.

The MyCoffs community conversation will endeavour to reach and inspire anyone and everyone to think about what we love about the place that we call home – and to motivate them to make their mark on that future.

Ultimately, the vision created by the MyCoffs conversation will inform a Plan called the Community Strategic Plan (CSP). The current Plan - Coffs Harbour 2030 - is now eight years old and it’s time for us as a community to look again at what we think is important.

As part of the campaign, MyCoffs Community Champions and representatives will be at ‘We Care Day’ on Saturday, October 8, at Brelsford Park to ask people what their priorities are for our area.

In addition to the MyCoffs team, Council’s Access Advisory Committee will be on hand to ask the community for their ideas to help develop a Disability Inclusion Access Plan.

‘We Care Day’ is all about bringing people together in an inclusive and accessible space to enjoy a day that celebrates who we are and the great place we live.

An inclusive society is something that’s very important to MyCoffs Community Champion Zarifa Nadir Hussain.

Former refugee Zarifa came to Coffs Harbour from Pakistan just over two years ago with her sisters and brother. She is honoured that Coffs is her new home and that she has the opportunity to start a new life.

Zarifa’s vision for the future of Coffs Harbour is: “A tolerant, respectful and inclusive community, where everyone feels they belong.”

Come along to ‘We Care Day’ and share your vision for the future or join the conversation via www.mycoffs.org
