Hands Across Canberra is working with Canberran charitable organisations and social enterprises to improve the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people in our city. To help our large community sector get access to much needed funds Hands Across Canberra raises money which is then allocated to those community organisations doing great work with our most vulnerable people.
By leveraging our extensive and growing networks, we bring people together. Collaboration and partnering are fundamental to our work, and Hands Across Canberra has many supporters who play a key role in our success. They know that investing in Canberra’s community benefits us all. We could not accomplish our goals without the support, involvement and enthusiasm of our committed partners.
