About Us

Communities@Work is the largest provider of children’s services and the largest not-for-profit community organisation in the ACT region, with a proud 43-year history.


We provide a wide range of early education and care services and community services in the ACT and Capital region. We pride ourselves on the positive contribution we make to the lives of members of our community. At Communities@Work, people are at the heart of everything we do. We go above and beyond in delivering high-quality services that support positive educational outcomes, assist in alleviating hardship, enhance quality of life, and lead to positive social change.

Communities@Work is a public company limited by guarantee and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. We employ over 600 employees, engage 90 self-employed Family Day Care and In-Home Care educators and harness the passionate commitment of more than 100 volunteers to help us carry out our mission of enriching the lives of people in our community in life-changing ways.

As a people-focused organisation, Communities@Work is committed to creating a sustainable future for the Canberra community. Our surplus-for-purpose philosophy enables us to invest every dollar we earn right back into the Canberra community, including the provision of much-needed essential support such as food, clothing and accommodation assistance to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community.

We operate across six program areas delivering high-quality services across Canberra and the ACT region.
