Welcome to the Communities at Work blog. We're proud and excited to launch this initiative.
Communities at Work is the largest not for profit community organisation in the Canberra region, and the largest provider of early childhood education and care (child care) services, and a range of complementary community services. We have a commitment to working with our community to support positive educational outcomes and build resilient, sustainable, and socially inclusive communities in the ACT and capital region. We have a long history in the Canberra community, and we pride ourselves on our positive social impact.
As part of our commitment to the Canberra community, we want to share what we have learned over more than 42 years living and working in our community, delivering a wide range of community services.
Communities at Work’s blog will include interviews, tips, advice, questions and answers, resources, essays, expert insights, guest articles and more, with a focus on empowering our community.
We will explore a wide range of issues impacting our community, share successes, and reflect on learnings. We will highlight positive social impact and innovation, discuss best practice and consider our future.
We will invite leaders and subject matter experts from both inside and outside Communities at Work to share their insights. You’ll hear from people who work in our community, our employees and volunteers, the clients we support, our community partners and supporters, and more.
We will also share insights from across the range of services we provide, which include:
Our Community Services
- The Essentials: Food, Clothing and Accommodation (Social Programs)
- Programs for Seniors
- Disability Services
- Community Transport
- Galilee School
- Community Development and Social Inclusion
