Support for community groups

Community OnBoard

Council's Community OnBoard is a networking and skills development program for local community groups, clubs and not-for-profit agencies.

Throughout the year, the program includes workshops designed to help you run, manage and develop your group, including:

  • information on governance, networking and partnerships
  • how to engage with stakeholder groups
  • help with grant applications, fundraising, risk management and marketing.

The workshops are run by experienced practitioners working in relevant industries who can teach you first-hand, practical information and skills.

Advocacy training for community groups

Community groups are powerful agents of change. Creating change for a better, more just society is sometimes a long and difficult task.

Change begins with behind the scenes preparation and great efforts of passionate people
who believe they can remove barriers and make a positive difference in our society – the advocates.

Presented by Non Profit Training, this session will help your community group appreciate how advocacy can be powerful in differing situations and provide you with the foundations for effectively bringing issues to a range of audiences to stimulate discussion and change.
