ourPlace #wearecairnswest


Building on the strengths and resilience in the neighbourhoods of Manunda, Manoora and Mooroobool.

Centacare FNQ’s Our Place #wearecairnswest Project aims to build on strengths and resilience in the neighbourhoods of Manunda, Manoora and Mooroobool. The emphasis is on whole-of-community cohesion and connection, with initiatives driven and designed by locals.  

The Our Place team includes six, well connected Community Builders, who weave the fabric of the neighbourhood together through hundreds of community conversations. The aim is to reveal community and cultural assets, stories, ideas, hopes, skills, passions and resources. 

‘Our Place’ aims to build on community strengths by:

  • Focusing on community cohesion, connection, safety and pride
  • Creating space for community decision-making and action
  • Facilitating local-level initiatives with diverse groups, families and individuals

Our Place – We are Cairns West is an opportunity for community to celebrate their identity. Centacare FNQ is delighted to host a dynamic, meaningful and positive project where community is supported to do what they are passionate about. The project is a wonderful platform for promoting what’s strong in community, instead of what’s wrong.”

Centacare FNQ has developed Our Place with funding from the Department of Social Services ‘Community Resilience Grant’ for the next three years.
