A PERTH FOR PEOPLE

We want to create a `Perth for People ’ – a city for the people that live here, work here, study here and play here. A safe city. A friendly city. A city where people feel happy and healthy, and connected to their neighbours. A city where people feel included, no matter what their race, age, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs. A place of innovation and opportunities.

To help with that mission, the City of Perth is preparing a Social Strategy to guide and underpin the City’s actions and initiatives that aim to address the social, health and wellbeing needs of our community now and into the future. The Strategy will align with the City’s Strategic Community Plan (right), which sets out the communities’ vision and aspirations for the future.

Now we are inviting the community – residents, workers, visitors, students - to have your say. Your opinions are valuable to us, so we are excited to be able to give you this opportunity to help shape the Social Strategy and the future of our City.

To support this process, the City has engaged Fred Consulting – a consortium of specialists in engagement, data analysis, research, social impact and strategic planning.

WHY A SOCIAL STRATEGY?

The City of Perth has a diverse population. The people who make up this community all have different social, health and wellbeing needs. The City’s six neighbourhoods are also different, and each place needs its own approach, services and initiatives.

Understanding the community’s needs, perceptions, values and desires is key to building resilient, connected, inclusive communities and cohesive, liveable neighbourhoods that pave the way for a more socially sustainable City.

COMMUNITY WELLBEING INDICATORS FRAMEWORK

It is now agreed that wellbeing is not just determined by being happy or healthy or economically stable. Rather, it is a combination of a range of conditions. The City of Perth’s new Community Wellbeing Indicators Framework was developed through rigorous review, both within Australia and internationally, of what we currently understand to be determinants of wellbeing. Extensive research and preliminary engagement with staff from the City of Perth’s business units was undertaken to inform this process.

Through effective target setting, and the monitoring and reporting on the dimensions of the Framework, the City of Perth will be able to provide, facilitate and/or advocate for important local issues and better inform policy and planning. The City of Perth will be in a position to assess how life has changed for people within its community, and in time how this compares with other communities. The Framework proposes that the City monitor and report on areas that impact the wellbeing of the community where it has control or influence.

The seven domains in the City’s Framework (above) reflect the high-level outcomes we are trying to achieve. Determinants have been grouped under each domain and for each determinant a set of indicators and measures has been identified.

The Community Wellbeing Indicators Framework will help to guide our conversations with the community, to better understand and gauge the social resilience, health, and wellbeing of Perth city people.
