Linking Rockbank is a place-based project which was first identified by Djerriwarrh Health Services in 2017 in response to the emerging challenges of rapid population growth and infrastructure.
Linking Rockbank has emerged following the earlier efforts and initiatives by the Melton City Council who have engaged with the local community of Rockbank and Woodlea (previously part of Rockbank) since 2014. In late 2017, the suburb boundaries changed and largely reduced the size of the suburb.
To promote a socially inclusive and connected community in Rockbank, capable of responding to local aspirations and community needs.
2019 Current projects:
We are really excited to announce that we have been successful in receiving two community grants:
- $5000 from Harness Racing Victoria/ TABCORP Park
- $5000 from The Club Caroline Springs
So what does this mean? We have HUGE plans for Rockbank over the next 12 months!
Monthly 'get to know your neighbours' nights:
- so that community members can meet and meet get to know one another
- to share information about what services are available locally
- to share groups and activities that are happening locally, and
- come up with ideas and plans to make Rockbank even better!
School holiday activities
Activities will be planned and delivered across Rockbank, Aintree and Mount Atkinson. More details will be provided soon.
Pop Up Activities
We plan to catch up with as many people as possible across Rockbank. Keep an eye out for flyers about free BBQs, community events and various free activities that will be available to community members.
We encourage local community members to come up with ideas about how they can make Rockbank even better! We have funding set aside to help them to bring these ideas to life and will support you and other community members to make these changes or run these events and activities.
