Big plans for 2020
Our focus for the next 12 months will be on building the identity and public recognition of community work as a skilled profession in Australia.

We have produced a suite of multimedia resources to be rolled out in 2020, including:

• A video which promotes the profession
• A careers guide for young people
• A jobs matrix which differentiates professions/roles
• An infographic snapshot of professional life

We have also launched the Australian Community Workers Foundation scholarship fund.

Now is a great time to become a member and part of our community. Join today
