What is community management?
Community-owned children’s services are non-government, non-commercial providers that reflect the needs of their community within the guidelines of good practice, as outlined by legal, ethical and community sector requirements. Services that are managed by the community can make decisions that reflect their community, be responsive to their community, and develop social capital by building connections, relationships and networks for families. The management committee is made up of representatives of that community. In your role as a committee member your contribution is vital, not only to your service, but also to the principles of community management and ownership.
