Kalamunda Connected

Kalamunda Connected is a plan for building a connected community. A community that works together to encourage and support each other’s endeavours within the Kalamunda community. Connected communities are happier, healthier and safer. Building connected communities and friendly neighbourhoods, provides opportunities for people to connect with each other and their region, to make a positive difference to the community through their endeavours. Social connection makes us feel better, both individually and as a whole, as it helps prevent loneliness, isolation and depression. Creating a more connected community will improve the social wellbeing of the community as a whole. Fundamental to this concept is promoting the value of active citizenship to the community, and, enabling people to connect to opportunities and to volunteering.
