About Social Futures
Welcome to Social Futures. An organisation which envisages communities in which people are equally valued and included. Social Futures is committed to improving the lives of people in the communities we service by working directly with individuals, families, community and government organisations in the priority areas of homelessness and housing, youth and family services and disability services.
We work as a regional leader alongside our partner organisations to strengthen and build capacity within our community sector by providing training, development, sector support and advocacy. Social Futures is responsive to our region’s changing needs as we identify priority areas for research and planning to meet our region’s future requirements.
