To understand and respond to local community needs and concerns, the 4cs have undertaken two community wide consultations in 2011 and more recently in 2017. Titled Listening @ lakemba the project has been a partnership with Bankstown TAFE and WESTIR with the objective of listening to the needs, issues, likes and dislikes of the people of Lakemba; working with them to define priorities and actions for change; and engaging other service providers and community leaders in this process to inform planning, delivery of services and advocacy.

The next consultation will be in 2021.
