About Us

Communities at 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

Communities at Work provides a range of early education and care services and community services in the ACT and Capital region. Our services and programs make a positive contribution to the lives of Canberrans and create a social impact in our community. People are at the heart of everything we do. We go above and beyond in delivering high-quality services so that you can experience positive educational outcomes for your children, find a helping hand in times of need, enjoy an enhanced quality of life, and engage with positive social change.

Communities at Work is a public company limited by guarantee and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. We employ over 600 employees, engage over 100 self-employed Family Day Care and In-Home Care educators and harness the passionate commitment of almost 100 volunteers to help us carry out our mission of enriching lives today and shaping better futures tomorrow.

As a people-focused for-impact organisation, Communities at 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.
