A public meeting was held at the Woodport Retirement Village on 23 July 1993 which was attended by community groups as well as Local, State and Federal government departments. The Central Coast community decided that there was a need for a Regional Council and that it would be called the Central Coast Community Council.
At a meeting held 20 August 1993 representatives were elected from the 12 geographical areas of the Central Coast and a working party was established to develop Terms of Reference, Aims and Objectives and a Constitution for the organisation.
On 21 December 1994 the CCCC became an incorporated body.
First funding received was $10,000 through NCOSS in May 1994 which allowed the CCCC to employ a worker for 10 hours per week to provide support to the working party by assisting with the administration, newsletters, membership, brochures etc.
The CCCC is now funded annually through the Department of Community Services on a ‘renewable’ basis. This funding covers the cost of wages for the Regional Development Officer, administration assistant and administrative costs only.
Funds raised through membership, assist with running Regional Forums and workshops for the Central Coast community.
CCCC works in partnership with the Central Coast Congress Working Party to provide the Bi Annual Congress Forum.
The objective of the CCCC is to foster the establishment and development of a democratic network of community based services and social action groups on the Central Coast, comprising the Local Government areas of Gosford and Wyong.
The CCCC is committed to social justice principles and seeks to meet the needs of community groups and other relevant local and regional organisations for resourcing and representation to enable them to improve and maintain the quality of life for the residents of the Central Coast.
The CCCC works to prevent inadequacy and inequity in the delivery of services to disadvantaged communities on the Central Coast.
Our vision for the Central Coast community is for all residents to have the best life they can by all organisations – community, corporate and government, working together to make our community strong and viable and the preferred place to live.
