Community insights -specialising in Census 2016


Our project work is diverse and rewarding.


During this, our 25th year, we’ve reflected on the many changes which have shaped the way we work.

In our rapidly changing world, people are increasingly isolated and afraid of difference. But there are strong countervailing forces.

Throughout Australia and the rest of the world, we are seeing the emergence of trends such as the collective us, the rise in local, citizens action and the desire to make a contribution through community.

And this desire is being realised – people are changing their worlds for the better through creating communities. We are proud to partner with communities and clients who seek to be part of this.

Together we’re fulfilling our passion for people to:

Live purpose-filled lives

Be connected to each other

Have the capacity to make a difference in their own and other’s lives

Thrive with little or minimum reliance on government or service providers.

Please join us in supporting the children of the Syrian Refugee Crisis by contributing to the World Vision Appeal this Christmas.

The Creating Communities team will be taking a break from Friday, 22 December 2017 and will return to the office on Tuesday, 2 January 2018.
