About us

We aim to build community capability and capacity.

Our vision

Our vision is of an increasingly self-confident community that works locally for economic progress and social justice; of a community service that moves beyond citizen information and advice to enablement and empowerment, that is responsive to the diverse needs and aspirations of the people it serves, and that communicates effectively and efficiently; a service that puts community problem-solving at its heart.

At the core of our approach is an emphasis on building and enhancing citizen capability and the community’s capacity.

We focus on successful and long-term outcomes

Our mission 

  • To tackle poverty, social injustice, disadvantage and discrimination

  • To ensure citizens understand and are enabled to exercise  their legal rights and responsibilities
