The power of a critical friend – Collective Change Facilitation

Do you ever wish you could call a friend to bounce ideas around or ask them for their opinion? Do you wish you had someone you could rely on to provide you with honest but constructive advice? Or someone who can keep an eye on the big picture and ask those tricky questions that get you thinking? Collective Change Facilitators (sometimes known as Collective Impact Facilitators) are an important part of the Prevention Translation and Support System being developed as part of the CREATE-ing Pathways to Child Wellbeing project. Collective Change Facilitators work to strengthen Community Coalition functioning, a factor that has been linked to coalition success when influencing positive community change. They support collaboration and relationships within and external to the community coalition by working alongside members of a partnership to enhance their functioning while also building capacity.

As part of this presentation, we will unpack what it means to be a Collective Change Facilitator and discuss the impact of a critical friend walking alongside you. 

This presentation will be led by CREATE Project Team member and Collective Change Facilitator Dr Sara Branch and Collective Change Facilitator Ms Charmaine Stubbs from The Salvation Army.

Coalition Wellbeing – Reviewing how well your collaboration works – the value of measuring the quality of community partnerships to enhance functionality and amplify impact

The natural fluctuations that occur in communities and community coalitions underline the importance of establishing a routine process for all partners to engage in regular reflection about coalition wellbeing and functioning. Self-review can be a powerful catalyst for growth and achieving shared goals. Collecting information that promotes reflection forms a core part of a continuous learning and improvement cycle and can help coalition members strengthen the way they work together to enhance outcomes for their community. The Coalition Wellbeing Survey was developed as a tool for use by community coalitions to review their collective practices in a systematic and replicable way. It helps coalitions gather reliable data on factors that are known to underpin successful collaborative initiatives.

Within the CREATE-ing Pathways to Child Wellbeing Project the Coalition Wellbeing Survey has been used by community coalitions throughout Queensland and NSW to measure coalition wellbeing and strengthen their collaboration. This presentation will discuss the value of using measurement tools like the Coalition Wellbeing Survey to strengthen collaboration.  

This presentation will be led by CREATE Project Co-director Professor Ross Homel and team leader Dr Kate Freiberg.
