Count Us In

Count Us InCount Us In is a practical document for Council staff, community partners and local residents designed to strengthen Council's integrated social planning. It promotes community development programs and encourages further collaboration with community organisations to enhance social benefits and opportunities for residents to get involved in their community. Count Us In includes a Social Inclusion Charter that outlines Council's commitment to social justice for all groups in the community.

Marrickville Council's Community Development team produced Count Us In to:

  • Promote the work Council does in partnership with community organisations and Marrickville's communities to achieve social outcomes
  • Facilitate collaboration with community organisations to achieve social justice as articulated in Our Place, Our Vision: Marrickville Community Strategic Plan
  • Provide information on access, equity, and social inclusion
  • Inspire partnerships with community organisations and other levels of government to build social capital and social infrastructure

Count Us In promotes collaboration and community commitment to Our Place, Our Vision: Marrickville Community Strategic Plan with particular emphasis on the practicalities of undertaking project work within an integrated social planning framework. It reinforces an all-of-council approach to meet social needs in partnership with other levels of government and community organisations.
