The Sunshine Coast has over 2000 not for profit organisation and community groups across many distinct communities.
Our current work focus is on strengthening relationships and capacity at board and committee level and providing pathways for boards and committees to support each other. This work is a program of the Sunshine Coast Community Cooperative.
If you are on the Sunshine Coast and you want to find out more, or get involved, please contact Mark on 0414 519 047 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
