Community Development Programme

Community Development Programme

The Community Development Programme (CDP) commenced on 1 July 2015 and is our remote employment and community development service. The CDP supports job seekers in remote Australia to build skills, address barriers to employment and contribute to their communities through a range of flexible activities.

MEEDAC is a Community Development Program (CDP) provider on behalf of the Australian Government. We provide a single point of contact for job seekers and employers in the Midwest West region which includes the following locations and surrounding areas: Mullewa, Northampton, Dongara, Kalbarri, Yalgoo, Morawa and Narngulu.

Under the CDP, job seekers with activity requirements are expected to participate in work-like activities that benefit their community. The CDP offers a broad range of flexible activities to not only increase job seekers’ skills but also contribute to their community.
