OUR MOB SPEAKS Community Engagement Program

Our Mob Speaks


Our Mob Speaks is a new way of listening to our communities to make sure MDAS is providing the support that is needed to help communities thrive.
 
This means we will be out yarning with people, young and old, and listening to what is on their minds and how they think MDAS can improve the support it provides. We will aim to yarn with around 400 people every three months, across Mildura, Swan Hill, Kerang and Robinvale.
 
Our Mob Speaks is about the community talking, and MDAS listening.

A dedicated team of good listeners will be doing the listening -   John Jackson, Ian Kirby, John Mitchell and Sarah Nalder. They will record only what is said, not who said it.  This is so everyone can feel safe to talk about what’s on their mind.

The information gathered will help continue to improve MDAS services.  This information may also be used to talk with government about community concerns and ideas, to make sure we are attracting the right investment to support our communities.

To keep everyone up to date, there will be regular updates on this website and on our Facebook page. This will show we are listening to our mobs speak, and what we are doing, or planning on doing, with the information we have been given.

Together we will shape the future that we want for our children today, and their children into the future.
