Smart Solutions for Community Services


Smart Solutions for Community Services, is designed for non-government, not-for-profit community services in Port Phillip. Our team will provide these groups with the support, training and expert knowledge needed to become a sustainability leader and reduce operating costs.


Community services don’t always have the time and resources to explore and implement sustainability measures. This program will provide the support that these organisations need to reduce their impact on the environment.

It is also an opportunity to link in with clients and the broader community to increase their environmental education and to promote the relevant behaviour change initiatives.

Five of the Best

The Smart Solutions for Community Services Program has now launched. A successful recruitment phase has resulted in five community services taking part in the Program, exceeding our target of four. We are delighted to be working with;


• Salvation Army Crisis Services

• MIND Australia

• Avidity Salon

• Alma Road Community House

• Uniting.


The Sustainable Programs team are currently meeting with each organisation to discuss their operations and key sustainability issues. This will allow us to complete an audit of water and energy use, as well as waste output.
