We provide a range of supports and activities that aim to create and contribute to Diverse and Resilient Communities. This includes direct Community Activities, Supports and Programs and a range of Business and Social Enterprise Initiatives.
There are so many opportunities to participate. Be it support through our community services; participation or attendance in our events or activities; volunteer and assist us directly; purchase our commercial service such as SEED Parks and Property Maintenance; or work with us.
As a not for profit organisation we need your help so we can help others. There are many ways you can support us including direct donations; giving or bequest; sponsorship or fundraising activities; volunteering your time; or corporate partnerships. All support is valuable so please get involved.
