‘The Collaborative’ is simply a term we use to describe the organisations and individuals who have come together to reduce suicide deaths and attempts in the Illawarra Shoalhaven region. It consists of representatives from more than 40 significant organisations across health, education, community, local media, police, ambulance, employment agencies, Aboriginal organisations, local councils, and transport, as well as lived experience advocates.

At our Connecting Together Event held on Monday 31st October we officially launched the Report Card 2022 which showcases the work of The Collaborative across the period 2020 to June 2022.
A limited number of copies of the resource have been printed and are available to order - please email us to arrange collection from our Wollongong office or to have one posted to you.
