About Hands Up Mallee
Hands Up Mallee is a Collective Impact Initiative based in the Northern Mallee region of Victoria on the land of the Latji Latji people. They take a place-based approach – working in partnership with community members, service providers, agencies, philanthropy and government to create and implement solutions driven by the community to meet their unique needs.
Meaningfully addressing the different social issues experienced in the Northern Mallee region means going beyond transactional consultation to instead work alongside community members – early and often – learning from their knowledge and experiences of local challenges. Communities need to be engaged to collaboratively design the initiative itself – along with local businesses, the services sector and funding bodies. This creates a shared and evidence-informed approach to guide action and investment for the greatest possible impact.
But, when you have multiple stakeholders with different skills, backgrounds and priorities addressing different needs across a 22,083 square kilometre region, how do you keep a line of sight on the impact being made? How can you demonstrate to funders and community that their investment in these interventions is worthwhile? That’s where Clear Horizon comes in.
