Canterbury City Community Centre (CCCC) started the "Listening@Lakemba" campaign after receiving Community Builders funding from the Department of Family and Community Services. The purpose of the project was to increase community capacity, resilience and promote social inclusion. The initial stages of the project saw CCCC carry out a series of consultations as part of the "Listening@Lakemba" campaign. 

Bankstown TAFE Certificate IV Community Welfare students administered the Household surveys door to door in selected areas of Lakemba on November 17th and 24th 2011. WESTIR was involved with compiling the survey, analysing and presenting the results at a community forum held on November 30th.
