About us

Who we are

Connecting Logan’s diverse communities and partners to enhance economic and social participation.

THRIVE Logan provides leadership, facilitation and coordination that builds community capacity and leverages the strengths and opportunities of Logan’s diversity and its unique economic environment.

We maximise impact by focusing on the following core areas:

  • Addressing social isolation and loneliness
  • Improving economic participation
  • Empowering local women
  • Building community capacity

The THRIVE Logan project team achieves this by coordinating key stakeholders to identify service gaps and duplication and then exploring opportunities to achieve common goals.

Our engagement approach involves placing the community’s voice at its centre and bringing together partners from across all levels of government, industry, education, and community to collaborate and co-design interventions that make an impact.

If you would like to get involved, get in touch.
