Moreland Connectors

About the Moreland Connectors

The Moreland Connector program is run by Moreland City Council. The program helps us as a Council to speak with and hear from community members who speak languages other than English.

In 2016, over 10,000 Moreland residents who spoke a language other than English at home reported difficulty speaking English. That’s why the Connectors are so important.

Connectors help us to communicate with our community and help us understand our community’s needs.

How does the program work?

Moreland Connectors sit between Moreland City Council and the community. The Moreland Connectors program is voluntary.

Moreland Connectors: 

  • Ask the community what information they need
  • Share information from the Council with their community
  • Tell us how we can improve messages and translations from the Council

Messages are on topics such as:

  • COVIDSafe behaviour and lockdowns
  • COVID-19 vaccination program
  • Council services and programs
  • Important Council updates about living in Moreland

What do the Moreland Connectors do?

The Moreland Connectors help us as a Council to communicate with our community in ways that our community needs.

A Connector might spend 2 to 3 hours each week:

  • Sharing weekly messages with their communities
  • Giving us advice on the best way to communicate with their community
  • Reaching out to the disconnected people in their community
  • Answering questions from their community
  • Attending training (such as how to build confidence in the COVID-19 vaccines)
  • Attending monthly Moreland Connector meetings

At the moment, the Moreland Connectors program is focused on sharing coronavirus information with the community. This includes promoting vaccinations.
