About Us

Community Tributaries (CT) is an inclusive community group based in Melbourne Australia. CT undertakes initiatives to help individuals and community groups, especially those new to Australia, though the exchange of skills and resources. We see the diverse skills and resources that we bring together as the tributaries of our activity streams, leading to better outcomes.

Our Purpose

  • To promote inclusive societies
  • To facilitate research, support, skill development and networks to improve independence and well-being of individuals and communities.

Our Objectives

  • To use the skills and networks of the members to help individuals and community groups to apply their skills in Australia
  • To identify and harness the many resources available in Australia to support the well being of individuals and communities from all backgrounds

Our Story

CT commenced in May 2016. It grew from a perceived need for individuals and communities, to access the resources they need to be healthy and support themselves.  It addresses these needs by facilitating networking and the sharing of skills and knowledge for people seeking employment or starting their own businesses. It also supports other initiatives that can lead to improvement in community well-being. CT serves as an umbrella, under which a range of diverse activities can take place. It is open to individuals of all genders, ages, residency status, nationalities and religions. CT’s 2016/172017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22 Annual Reports provide more information about our first six years of operation as an incorporated association.

Our New Status

CT was incorporated in Victoria from its commencement in May 2016. On 3rd February 2023 CT ceased to be an incorporated association. Former members of Community Tributaries Incorporated formed an new informal group, Community Tributaries, which allows them to continue CT’s activities as individuals in partnership with fellow members and partner organisations.
