Jobs Victoria's $10.8 million Community Revitalisation Program offers new pathways to employment for those facing entrenched barriers to meaningful and ongoing work. Community revitalisation involves the community as active participants in delivering solutions. The following community revitalisation initiatives are currently underway:
- Passport to Work aims to increase the level of productivity and emotional resilience of local job seekers over a three to four month period so that they are ready to move into meaningful, ongoing work.
- Social procurement Employment and Economic Development (SEED) program is a collaborative approach which aims to build capacity of Hume businesses to adopt inclusive and diverse employment practices and to create collective impact through social procurement. The program aims to inspire and support local organisations across a range of industries to establish a Hume Framework and Regional Action Plan providing the roadmap for businesses to adopt inclusive and diverse employment practices. A network of leading Hume private and public industry partners is working together to create employment opportunities for local people and improve economic outcomes for the Hume community.
