Who Are We?

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. 

The Vision 

‘One Community Together – Supporting our welcoming, proud, safe and attractive Clarence Plains community’ 

What We Do 

One Community Together formed in 2014 to build on the work of local organisations and community members in Clarence Plains. To expand on the good things happening in our community and work together on some of the challenges. 

We bring the Clarence Plains community together to share ideas, concerns and vision for our local community; and create opportunities for everyone to work together for the community we want. We work in teams, guided by a steering committee.

One Community Together members and participants are proud to work together. 

Our representatives include: local residents, Hobart City Mission, Clarence City Council, Tasmania Police, Mission Australia Housing, Rokeby Neighbourhood Centre, Clarendon Vale Neighbourhood Centre, Clarence Plains Child and Family Centre, Libraries Tasmania, Grace Church, Clarence Lions Club, Abundant Life Church, Bayview Secondary College, Beacon Foundation, Rotary Club of Howrah plus new groups and people are joining all the time.
