Leadership Ballarat and Western Region

LBWR supports our objective of building a sustainable, connected and responsive community by developing community capacity.

The Leaders Forum community leadership program is an annual experiential program for 30 emerging leaders drawn from all sectors of our community. The program encourages imaginative and informed thinking about the future of the region and provides a stimulus to develop a vision for the future.

270+ graduates of LBWR leadership program contribute an estimated return on investment of more than $1.5 million per annum  into the local communities annually through volunteering.
