D'FAT and Salvos working together

A PARTNERSHIP between the Derwent Valley Youth Future Action Team (D'FAT) and the local Salvation Army Corps will continue in the new year, D'FAT chairman Nic Kaiser has announced.

Mr Kaiser said it had been agreed to renew the agreement at the November D’FAT meeting. “This renewal comes following the partnership agreement gaining continued support and endorsement from the Derwent Valley Salvation Army,” he said.

D'FAT Facilitator Matt Hill said it had been more than a year since D’FAT began its partnership with the Derwent Valley Salvation Army. “This partnership agreement has provided opportunities for D’FAT and the Salvation Army to work together to benefit the Derwent Valley community, families, children and young people," Mr Hill said.

“This agreement has also provided D’FAT with a long-term location for their meetings, indoor New Norfolk activities and secure storage of equipment," he said.

  1. Sometimes, the best way to move forward is to follow a circle. In progressing the Derwent Valley Community Strategic Plan open and honest dialogue between everyone is essential. It's important to lay solid foundations of trust, loyalty, and collaboration.

    This story demonstrates number 4 of the outcomes sought in the plan..."Services are integrated to maximise opportunities. Together, services are delivered in a coordinated way so that the particular needs of the community don't slip through the cracks."

    “This partnership agreement has provided opportunities for D’FAT and the Salvation Army to work together to benefit the Derwent Valley community, families, children and young people," Mr Hill said. We can all play our part in spotting other opportunities to foster & create partnerships.

    But most of all, if you do anything, I ask that you make a promise to yourself, that each day, you will ask, "What have I done to advance, advocate or participate in the Derwent Valley Community Strategic Plan today?" If we are able to fulfill that promise then that becomes are very own partnership agreement with the plan.
