Our Partnership

The Gippsland Regional Partnership is one of nine such Partnerships across the state, established by the Victorian Government, recognising that local communities are in the best position to understand the opportunities and challenges faced by their region.

Over the past four years, our Partnership has heard from thousands of people living and working in Gippsland, including through three Regional Assemblies and two mini Assemblies.

We've taken your voice to the heart of the Victorian Government, and we look forward to hearing from you going forward.

Regional Roundtables

Each of the nine Regional Partnerships hosted a virtual roundtable over May/June to hear directly from community and business leaders across regional Victoria about the local impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The insights and evidence from the roundtables are helping us better understand the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on local communities and are paving the way for recovery through identifying the unique challenges and opportunities each region faces in driving social and economic recovery.

Working in collaboration with the Regional Partnerships, Victoria’s five regionally based Regional Development Australia (RDA) committees discussed place-based responses to local issues to align Victorian and national efforts across all three tiers of government.

We want to hear from you.

We’re interested to hear your thoughts on the outcomes of our Regional Roundtables. Please take a look at the playback document above and let us know what you think. Are there any issues we missed? Do you have ideas for potential actions that we mightn’t have thought of? Let us know – all feedback is welcome.

Would love to see CALD representation on the regional plans.
