Australia’s growing population is made up of numerous unique communities and sub cultures, each with their own needs and strengths. The NFP sector, made up of 44,000+ charities in Australian supports the unique communities with more than 1 million staff and almost 4 million volunteers. The NFP sector in Australia is really the heart of our Australian communities and worthy of understanding.

Therefore as an organisation committed to empowering human flourishing, McCrindle conducts an annual study, The Australian Communities Trends Report. We launch the research in an event to showcase the report and infographic which explores the latest trends shaping the NFP sector. We know it can feel like a saturated sector, however each organisation plays a unique role and we commit to this research every year as our investment into the sector to help every one of the organisations that undergirds Australian society.
