Voices & Vision
Voice as a strategy
Gathering and sharing people's stories, voices and visions for the future increases mutual understanding and creates new possibilities for stronger communities. Stories and voices can connect and inspire us.
Many of our strategies highlight people's voices and stories. As a small community organisation, Bridges used its own voice to contribute to the development of Voice for SONG and to help create a more supportive environment for itself and other small community organisations. As Bridges continues our work, we will support more voices to be heard as part of our strategy to strengthen family, community and organisational relationships.
