The YCCC Podcast Project
Undertaken for and with the support of the VLGA, the YCCC podcast project aims to break down barriers between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People and Victorian local government.
About this project
The Your Community, Country and Council (YCCC) project is funded by the Victorian Local Governance Association (VLGA) and produced by Connection Matters Radio. At its core is the desire to break down the barriers that exist between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People and Victorian Local Government Authorities.
