...to community resources

Community Resources is a national not-for-profit community development organisation established in 1987.

We are the home of social enterprises Resource Recovery Australia, Soft Landing mattress recycling, Helping Hands and Green Connect. In addition, we manage a range of community programs and initiatives through Homebase Youth and Aboriginal Services. We are also the home of WasteAid Australia, who form part of the WasteAid International network. As of June 2018 our turnover is $19 million, and we employ over 400 staff.

Community Resources use local knowledge and networks, in partnership with government, industry and community, to assist people experiencing disadvantage to develop social and economic livelihoods for themselves.

We believe that a community may be judged by how it responds to those in need. By assisting people experiencing disadvantage to develop livelihoods for themselves we create a safe, healthy, sustainable and inclusive community.

We hold Aboriginal people in high esteem. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land we work upon. We invest in our people and the development of local community assets in the areas in which we work.
