Australian Progress’ Capacity Building Hub supports small nonprofits and grassroots movements to survive the pandemic and thrive beyond it.

The CBH offers tailored capacity building and coaching to grassroots movements and small nonprofits working on issues directly impacted by the pandemic, with a focus on organisations led by people with lived experience of the issues on which they campaign.

The organisations supported by the Hub include advocates for First Nations justice, racial justice, affordable housing, intergenerational equality, disability justice, gender equality, a climate-led recovery and more.

This collection brings together materials from many sources on governance to fundraising to digital campaigning that many small organisations will find useful.
