A critical element of Flexi's success is its relationship with the community. Over the ten years of Flexi's work in the Toowoomba region one of the guiding principles has been its community partnerships. It has been found that solutions to community issues involving youth require involvement from all parts of society - public, volunteer and private sectors. Growing together depends on the establishment of mutually beneficial partnerships that involve a range of expertise and experience.
Capacity building through the support of local organisations has laid the foundations for Flexi's sustainability as a key intervention strategy for youth issues in the area.
