Communities that Care Alpine (CTCA)
Organisations and community groups within the Alpine Shire have come together to create Communities that Care Alpine (CTCA). CTCA is a community based initiative designed to promote the healthy social development of children and young people.
Alpine Health is the auspice agency for CTCA and was due to begin a third cycle of the framework when bushfires and COVID changed how we work. We are currently reviewing and re-structuring how these efforts will be maintained moving forward. Underpinned by the Social Development Strategy, CTCA aims to improve the lives of children, young people and families living in the Alpine Shire.
CTC Youth Survey
In September 2019, the CTC youth survey was competed by nine schools across the Alpine Shire by students in Year 5, Year 6, Year 7, Year 9 and Year 11.
In November 2019 the CTC youth survey report was delivered at the final workshop within the CTCA cycle. The results are measured against the SMART goals developed within the CTCA Community Action Plan 2017 – 2019.
The 2019 survey is the third such survey conducted in the Alpine Shire.
- 2009 surveyed students in Myrtleford – CTCM Community Action Plan 2012 - 2015
- 2015 surveyed students from Myrtleford and Mount Beauty – CTCA Community Action Plan 2017 - 2019
- 2019 surveyed students from nine schools across the Alpine Shire
This data provides us with a rich snap shot of the lives of young people in the Alpine Shire and significant longitudinal and comparative data.
