Civil Society

Civil Society encompasses the diverse range of community services undertaken by charities and not-for-profit organisations across Australia, from local sporting clubs, to cultural groups, service clubs and national organisations that operate at a local level.

The demands for the vital services provided by civil society organisations continue to rise and change. The Australian Government recognises this and is committed to fostering a supportive and productive relationship with these important organisations to ensure services continue for those who need them.

The Department is delivering on the Government’s commitment by streamlining processes for civil society organisations and working in partnership with entities such as the National Bush Recovery Agency for cross government approach.
