Community Development


"'Development' means ‘to unroll’, or ‘unwrap’. Therefore just as ‘personal development’ is unwrapping the potential of a person, ‘community development’ is unwrapping the potential of communities (people in relationship)"   Tim Muirhead, Weaving Tapestries


What We Do

We will support you in your work of drawing out the full potential of your local community, your community of interest, or your organisational community.

Tim's book Weaving Tapestries: A Handbook for Building Communities has been influential in community development pratice in Western Australia.
