The Futures Project

Enhancing Governance in Multicultural Communities  

ECCV responded to a need within the community sector to ensure multicultural and ethno-specific organisations can retain and grow their sustainability, viability and value in the not-for-profit sector. The Futures Project provided strategic and practical support over three years to improve the governance of organisations that makes up the bulk of the ECCV membership. The Futures Project toolkit provides information and tailor-made resources which works to build the confidence of ethnic and multicultural organisations to actively participate and contribute to the social, cultural and economic vibrancy of community life in Victoria.

The Futures Project has delivered on four key outcomes 1. A round of twelve forums 2. Identified key elements of good governance through community consultations 3. Provided targeted support through mentoring and 4. a resources toolkit for Multicultural community organisations.
