Who We Are
communitybuilders.nsw was developed in response to a desire expressed by communities across NSW to access information about what others are doing to make social change for good and to hear what works. The initiative was launched in September 1998.
The website was launched in 1999 and has been coordinated by New South Wales Government (Australia) as a joint project in partnership with a range of people involved in community building. In March 2013 the NSW Department of Family and Community Services contracted Local Community Services Association (LCSA) under a selective tender process to maintain and manage the website on behalf of the NSW Government.
This site is aimed to provide a practical resource and communication channel to people working to strengthen the capacity of their communities.
