A practical guide to setting up and operating a school-based community hub using the Community Hubs Australia model.
The national community hubs program is resourced through one of Australia’s biggest partnerships between the philanthropic sector and federal, state and local governments.
These hubs operate under the evidence-based community hub model. They are located in communities with high migrant and refugee populations and high levels of socioeconomic disadvantage. The hubs leverage existing, family friendly community facilities, with the vast majority located in state and Catholic primary schools (two are based in community centres). Hubs welcome all migrants, including fathers, however women with young children are their primary client group.
