Community capacity building
Brisbane City Council is committed to strengthening community connection at the neighbourhood level and building capacity and resilience within communities across Brisbane. Council supports communities to expand their existing skills and networks and develop their organisations, leaders and groups to identify and respond to community priorities in making Brisbane more accessible and inclusive.
Council offers grants to support local not-for-profit groups to build innovative and effective responses to emerging community needs and social issues. Objectives include increasing community identity, connections and social inclusion. Find out more.
Council supports Men’s Shed groups in Brisbane to provide a safe, supportive and friendly environment for men of all ages to volunteer, work and gather together. Find out more.
