What we do

EV Strengthening Communities seeks a community in which everyone can participate and belong and as such this vision drives our services. We have traditionally operated in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne however in 2023 have become a national body to strengthen many communities across the nation.

We strengthen communities by supporting people who seek to participate and be engaged in their community. We do his through both transport and volunteering services.
We strengthen organisations that deliver services to communities through our support to organisations with volunteer as well as paid workforces, through supporting Boards with their governance and offering capacity building services for community groups.

We strengthen communities by supporting place-based partnerships with other organisations that promote positive change and our advocacy for policy which supports socially just and equitable policy.
