How are community hubs funded and governed?​

Community hubs are supported by funding partners including the Scanlon Foundation, the Australian Government, and state and local governments. Local schools, the private sector and the community sector also provide support.

The program is guided by advisory groups at three levels: at the local level, school principals and key partner agencies; at the state level, government and stakeholder organisations; and a national advisory committee of experts from a range of disciplines.
