Advocating for individual choice, social and economic participation in the community
We provide localised support through our businesses, programmes and initiatives working closely at a community level across Australia. We aim to deliver a positive impact for the communities we operate in, working with disengaged youth, people with disability, and focussing on creating and encouraging pathways to employment.
Interact Australia: Interact Australia is a values based not-for-profit organisation, inspiring action and change for people with disabilities in the community since 1991. Interact creates connections to achieve social inclusion and equality throughout Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria. Interact delivers community and employment related services as a Disability Employment Service provider and is a registered service provider for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
CTC: For the past five years, CTC has supported a program called Youth Housing and Reintegration Service (YHARS) which has helped more than 650 young people aged 12-21, either homeless or at risk of homelessness, in the Rockhampton and Livingstone areas, find safe accommodation and re-engage in a constructive life through education and training. YHARS is a joint federal and state funded initiative, part of the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH).
MAS National: MAS National has been delivering the innovative ‘Cycle of Change’ program in South Australia, engaging young, disadvantaged and vulnerable people to support and empower them for the future. The program is an Empowering YOUth Initiative, delivered in conjunction with the Australian Government Department of Jobs and Small Business.
Inner North Community Foundation: Established in 2007, the Inner North Community Foundation is an independent community foundation based in Melbourne’s inner northern suburbs that provides funding to community projects in the area. The Foundation acts as a safe pair of hands to link donors with community groups engaging in worthwhile projects, particularly those focused on supporting people on the path to employment.
