Social planning objectives are embedded in Council’s Community Strategic Plan, MOSPLAN, and Disability Inclusion Action Plan and social research, consultation and findings inform Council’s approach to ensuring the effective provision of services and programs for children, youth, older people, and the community as a whole.
As part of social planning research, extensive review is undertaken of census data available in Mosman’s population profile and forecast.
In addition to social planning analyses undertaken at a local or regional level for these specific target groups, generalist social planning documents are also produced on relevant social issues.
Mapping Mosman’s Community Services and Programs
A social planning analysis was undertaken in late 2017 and provides strategic advice based on demographic data, identification of existing local community services, programs and facilities, and results of the most recent consultation and planning undertaken by Council and State and Commonwealth and non-government agencies.
