Comm Unity Plus Services Ltd (commUnity+), is a multi-disciplinary community agency that provides services across Victoria while looking for opportunities to deliver programs and support to people experiencing disadvantage or hardship in communities rich in cultural diversity.
We strive to create positive change, growth, and empowerment through a range of early intervention and prevention programs. These programs include high-quality Adult Education, Children’s Contact Service, Neighbourhood House and Legal (through Brimbank Melton Community Legal Centre), as well as community engagement and development activities.
Our clients are people facing disadvantage and social exclusion, particularly communities new to Australia, vulnerable children and women, and those who need a helping hand in achieving just outcomes from governments and the legal system.
We also partner with a large number of private, community and government agencies to enhance our service delivery and increase access for our communities.
Our grassroots origins as a small residents’ action group at the Deer Park Neighbourhood House have resulted in a fundamental focus on positive change, growth, and empowerment. We are now a large community-based organisation funded by local, state and Commonwealth government departments and other philanthropic trusts. Through this, our team of dedicated professionals now have a greater capacity to deliver on our vision of building the capacity of our community through respecting diversity and striving for social justice.
commUnity+ has become a company limited by guarantee to further strengthen governance and prepare for expansion.
