Kingborough Council is committed to creating a community that is inclusive, safe, welcoming and respectful for all.
Kingborough has one of the highest multicultural populations, with over 21% of residents born overseas here, compared the rest of Tasmania which has 15% born overseas.
To better understand and address the needs of our multicultural communities, Council has formed a Multicultural Advisory Group with members of the community and Councillors. The Advisory Group is helping Council engage with the Kingborough’s multicultural communities through a survey. The feedback received from this engagement will inform the development of a Multicultural Action Plan to better address the needs of our multicultural communities.
The survey will be open from 14 September to the 12 October. The results from the survey will inform the development of a Multicultural Action Plan for Kingborough.
Hard copy version of the survey can also be accessed at the Civic Centre Kingston at the Customer Service counter or at the Kingston Library.
COUNCIL: On 19 December 2022, Council approved the Multicultural Advisory Group being convened to engage with the community and develop a Multicultural Action Plan.
EOI: Expressions of interest were open between 8 May and 5 June 2023 to anyone with a multicultural background or who is involved with delivering services to Kingborough’s community who wish to take part in the Multicultural Advisory Group.
PURPOSE: The Multicultural Advisory Group will help shape Council’s engagement with the community, enabling Council to develop a Multicultural Action Plan in the near future.
