Welcome to One Community Together

“Supporting our welcoming, proud, safe and attractive Clarence Plains Community”

One Community Together is a collective of residents, community groups and organisations in Clarence Plains. We work together on shared goals with, and for, our local community that build on our individual strengths to create positive change together. 

Clarence Plains is a sweeping valley on the eastern shore that tracks the Clarence Plains Rivulet to the River Derwent; and is home to the communities of Clarendon Vale, Glebe Hill, Oakdowns and Rokeby. 

‘Shaping the Plains’


One Community Together’ is excited to offer the position for a VOLUNTEER for our ‘Shaping the Plains’ project!
The volunteer position will be responsible for delivery of the One Community Together project, ‘Shaping the Plains’. This is not a paid position; however, it does attract a small payment in the way of a $200 gift card of choice per story that is written and approved for publishing to One Community Together’s social media platforms.

It is preferable that the volunteer be living in the Clarence Plains community of Rokeby, Oakdowns, Clarendon Vale and Glebe Hill.
The successful volunteer will require skills and interest in storytelling/writing, photography and historical research. Talking with and interviewing people across

Clarence Plains to gather and listen for unique stories will be one of the tasks required. Professional photography equipment is not required.

The volunteer will be required to deliver two stories per month for the next 12 months that will be ready to publish on One Community Together’s social media platforms. One story will profile a local resident talking about a personal story or experience about something or someone that has helped shape their life.

The second story will feature a piece of local history from the Clarence Plains area on places, people, groups and or events in Clarence Plains that have helped shape the community we have today.

Through the power of image and story the project will build a picture of where the community has come from and the people and things that have impacted to make it what it is today.

The successful applicant will work closely with the ‘Shaping the Plains’ project team.
Applications open from 9-23 November, closing Monday 23rd November at 9 am.

Position Description and Application Form

Over the last few years One Community Together has assisted in, organised and supported multiple events in our community aimed at “Supporting our welcoming, proud, safe and attractive Clarence Plains Community.” These events have ranged from community workshops to discuss issues that concern our neighbourhoods and how we can work together to come up with solutions, all the way through to community celebrations and festivals. We’ve mobilised volunteers to help clean up our streets and parks and have worked with Council on projects that have made our streets and green spaces more attractive and safe. We’re in the process of documenting some of our “Highlights” and you can check them out here on our site. If you’d like to get involved with any of our upcoming projects we’d love to hear from you.

Events – Past, Present & Future

Meanwhile down at the Grace Centre

During the next 2 months the Grace Centre will be undergoing some changes. The toilets, foyer and parking will all be getting an upgrade which will be fantastic. That does mean that access to our office will be a little bit tricky and there will be days when Elise will be working off site so best to call ahead if you are wanting to catch up.
