Community Development Programme
Closing the Gap at Palm Island through our Community Development Programme.
We believe that everyone deserves a chance to be seen, a chance to be heard and a chance to thrive. Our Community Development Programme (CDP) is our remote employment and community development service. We have made it our mission to provide the Palm Island community with access to the opportunity of sustainable employment.
Our goal, therefore, is to provide community impact and support.
Campbell Page CDP has two parts; we support people into jobs and help them contribute to the overall community while they gain the skills they need to get into work.
We have been operating employment programs on Palm Island since 2013, including CDP, which commenced in 2015. Since then, our CDP Team has been dedicated to increasing employment and breaking the cycle of welfare dependency on Palm Island.
Within the community, we are developing activities that build the skills of participants and ensure they are job-ready, while also being meaningful to the individual, and culturally appropriate.
