We coordinate one of Australia’s biggest partnerships between the philanthropic sector, federal, state and local governments, schools and service providers to fund and facilitate place-based programs to help build greater community connectedness and social cohesion. Our community hubs support migrant families, particularly women and children in their local communities, and the Refuge of Hope supports Latin American international students living in Melbourne.
We aim to have a presence in culturally diverse and disadvantaged communities across Australia. Our programs are funded by a coalition of philanthropic, government, community and corporate organisations, and delivered by diverse community partners. We facilitate the testing of programs that increase connection, and work to embed proven programs and to advocate their wider adoption.
