Are you interested in diversity? If so, you may like to help establish the Diversity Network.

As our local communities change and often become more diverse, we need to find ways to help brigades adapt to these changes. This is why the Engaging Diverse Communities Project Team is seeking interest in establishing a CFA Diversity Network. The network would give interested CFA members: 

  • a deeper understanding of the issues facing diverse communities
  • practical skills and knowledge needed to engage with diverse communities
  • the opportunity to help create welcoming environments where diversity is celebrated in brigades.

And, of course, this aims to help brigades and communities become more resilient.

The aim of this survey

We know you’re probably sick of surveys, but we really hope you’ll take a few minutes to complete this one as we’re keen to take direction from CFA members on where we go with the Diversity Network. Your responses will be kept confidential.

 You can access the survey by clicking on the link below:

We have extended the closing date of the survey to 10 October 2013so please take this opportunity to have your voice heard before then.

Why be involved in the Network?

By being involved in the Diversity Network you will have an opportunity to focus on this important area of community engagement. If there is sufficient interest from CFA members, the Network will bring members together to share ideas and learn how to actively engage with the diverse members of our community. The Network will be supported by staff working on the Volunteer Support Program in the Engaging Diverse Communities Project.

By being involved, you can help create and promote an atmosphere in your brigade that values diversity, and where all members are treated with respect and dignity.

How involved you are is entirely up to you!
