2021 WRAP UP

A BIG thank you goes to all those who worked with others to create positive change in Port Hedland this year.


Enriching the Hedland Community through Collaborative Action The Collective was established to bring together a wide range of stakeholders to bring momentum and turn areas of need into opportunities.

New challenges are being identified for action next year!! The Steering Committee has been attended by representatives from Apprenticeships Support Australia, BHP, Hedland Network of Principals, FMG, Pilbara Community Legal Service, The Junction Co, WACOSS, Well Women’s, Town of Port Hedland, and WA Country Health.



CURENT INITIATIVES

Welcome StreetNet The importance of neighbours in your street was the focus of StreetNet, a program developed at the beginning of the Covid pandemic. Hosts received a $100 Woolworths voucher and a “how to kit,” to help them to connect to their street. The results are people feeling more connected and safer on their streets with some reporting positive impacts on their mental health. The StreetNet initiative is supported by FMG.

To find out more about StreetNet head to the Hedland Collective | Stronger Together page here.

Welcome Features Throughout 2021, the Hedland Collective Community Board and Facebook group profiled local organisations offering services to the community in order to shine the light on all the powerful and positive work being done in Hedland for the local Community.

Together Child Care Collaboration Network Throughout 2021, the Hedland Collective continued to convene the Child Care Collaboration Network. This group has representation from across 13 different organisations. The Hedland Childcare Action Plan has supported the delivery of a number of successful initiatives.

15 students

The Childcare Collaboration network successfully promoted the School Based Traineeship in Certificate II & III in Childcare. This has seen a total of 15 students choose a career pathway in Childcare.

7 staff members The Thriving Futures Partnership, led by Child Australia, has seen 7 staff members placed into participating centres in Port Hedland.

30% loyalty program

The Town of Port Hedland implemented a loyalty program for all Childcare workers which sees childcare workers receiving 30% off at Town of Port Hedland facilities.

Discussions are currently being conducted between childcare centres and primary schools to assess where and when before and after school care could be implemented in 2022 . We thank the members of this group for their valuable contributions in 2021: YMCA, Rose Nowers, One Tree, Treloar, Child Australia, Pilbara Development Commission, BHP, Len Taplin, Town of Port Hedland, Newman Daycare Centre, Shire of East Pilbara, Telethon Kids Institute, Hedland Network of Principals.

Pilbara Family Domestic Violence Network In 2021, The Hedland Collective continued to support WACOSS in the facilitation of the Pilbara Domestic Violence Network. The group had participation from 17 organisations from government, not for profit and research sectors throughout 2021. Network delivered three trauma informed practice training workshops in the region

and laid the foundations for the Vital Changes program for men who choose to use violence and designing a coordinated Pilbara wide preventative program. The network also began to work on improving communication and collaboration within the sector, particularly between ACCO’s and mainstream groups.

Opportunity Hedland Collective Senior High School and Industry Steering Committee In a town like Port Hedland the opportunity for young people to access work through the industries of the region is very important. A focus on School Based Traineeships (SBT) has magnified that opportunity. In 2019, 43 students in 7 industries participated and in 2021 it was 74 students across 10 industries. The number of options for students continues to grow with Allied Health and Health Services being made available in 2022.

A survey of employers shows that 80% would employ their SBT graduate and 100% of students say that the program has prepared them well for employment. Turning the high school into the most tech savvy school in the State is another project that the Steering Committee has initiated. More information will be available in 2022.

Hedland Local Jobs Website Following discussions with stakeholders across the community, the Hedland Collective created the Hedland Jobs Platform. Following its launch in early 2021, the platform has recently gone through a makeover to improve functionality of the site for employers and job seekers. Included as part of the upgrade is a dedicated traineeship and apprenticeship function. The platform also includes tips and tricks for job seekers, and an Employers Hub with helpful resources for employers. This, along with our work supporting the successful school-based traineeships program at Hedland Senior High School is in line with one of the Collective’s key strategic aims – to unlock opportunities for all people in the community.

Check out the Hedland Jobs platform here. For more information about the Hedland Local Jobs website email: info@hedlandcollective.com
