Local Investment – Local Ownership – Local Benefit

Local Investment Local Ownership Local Benefit

We believe that local people should benefit from local development.

Highly skilled locals

Leederville contains many people who are highly skilled in the finance industry and have a strong committment to their financial activity building social and environmental good.


Leederville Connect are looking at the new developments that are being planned and consider that Leederville residents and businesses should have the opportunity to own, and benefit from, developments in “our patch”.

Independent investment

Putting these two ideas together – Leederville Connect will be facilitating the development of an independent investment  opportunity for people to invest in their local community and help fund a better world.

Leederville Connect is a civil society organisation, where everything is done by community, for community.

We have a really broad idea of community; for us it’s about bringing together residents, businesses, property owners and visitors. Our bottom line is – “it’s about ‘we’, not me”. We support each other and the rest of the community to make Leederville amazing. We are proud to be one of the pioneering Town Teams that Western Australia is now famous for in place-based planning and community practices.

Our mandate is ‘the Commons’ – those places and things in our cities from which everybody benefits but traditionally nobody takes responsibility. The Commons are where we meet in the street, the culture we create between us, the vibe of our place, the blurred lines between public spaces and private places.

We provide the opportunity for people to shape Leederville and draw on its history of innovation and creativity to continue exploring, experimenting, and inventing the future of this place. As a vibrant, connected, inner-city urban village, Leederville offers us a platform to test ideas for the future of society; one that is sustainable, resilient, and thriving. Our community works with developers, local government, businesses, and other citizens to co-create this future. You can read about our Vision here.
