Community Clubs in the ACT make a significant contribution to the local communities in which they exist. Clubs supported over 1000 local community groups and clubs last year. We understand that without the contribution that clubs make many of these community groups they would cease to exist and would ultimately be a great loss to the Canberra community.
Unfortunately, the Labor-Greens Government is not a fan of the current community contributions model whereby the clubs distribute money directly to the community. They want to siphon a large portion of those funds into a third party organisation and/or a government arm to then make the call on where the money goes.
Please let us know your thoughts on the issue.
