In 2008, a group of researchers surveyed 108 children across six different places in the eastern part of Australia - aged between eight and twelve years to ask : What do children think about the communities they live in? What do children like and value about their communities? What would they like to change? Adults often talk about communities. Many people, including those in government who make decisions about our country and our lives, say it is important to have ‘strong communities’. But we don’t often hear what people aged between eight and twelve years think makes a community strong.
Find a community has established 21 themed directories to make it easy for you to get connected to some of the 600,000 community groups that make Australia such an exciting and diverse place to live.
