Neighbourhood Liaison Officers

Our Neighbourhood Engagement Team is working behind the scenes to keep you connected with what’s happening in your local neighbourhoods and to provide you with information, connection and support when you need assistance. They are also teaming up with the amazing community members who registered to become Community Connectors, to help link the “doers” with the people who need some extra support in their street or community. Our Liaison Officers are covering various suburbs across Canning - so feel free to reach out to the wonderful human working your community!

Meet Ryan

Hi There! I’m Ryan and am the Neighbourhood Liaison Officer for the Beeliar Ward in the City of Canning. My current role with the City is Active Spaces Officer (Recreation) - which is focused on supporting and building the capacity of our Sport & Recreational Clubs & provide connections for community members to participate in sporting or unstructured physical activities.I have a passion to provide everyone with the same opportunity to participate in sporting and recreational activities, which provides not only physical benefits but helps develop social skills, leadership, problem solving and offers people a sense of belonging. These opportunities can also provide communities with a sense of connectedness and safer, more inviting environment which we love to see in Canning.

As you may have guessed I do enjoy anything with a bat or ball, and have played AFL and Cricket from a young age at community club level – but also enjoy anything outdoors and riding my dirt bike. I look forward to meeting everyone (even if it’s via a webcam) and to provide support where possible, and showcase the positives that have come out throughout this unpredictable time.
