Partners and Sponsors
The Nest Community collaborates with the following community groups:
The wider community forms an integral part of The Nest Community and we aim to foster synergy with like-minded community groups and services. An important strategy for the Nest is to forge links with local community groups to help create safe spaces for disadvantaged women and children. We believe when individuals act together social change can occur and that fostering connections in the community will result in greater harmony and resilience
The Nest Community is generously supported by a many local organisations including: Bunya & Golden Valley Keperra Lions Clubs, Brisbane Visual Arts Community, Mitchelton Rotary Club, Bunnings, Brisbane City Council, Wesley Mission Queensland, and local church groups, individuals, local businesses and business networking groups.
The Nest was established supporting ideas of environmentalism and sustainability. Therefore, we value the re-use of materials and the re-purpose of goods to minimise waste. The Nest program portfolio includes three integrated components to support sustainable living: Creative Skills Development, Awareness & Empowerment, and Community Resilience.
Currently, The Nest supports 38 community groups through donations of skills and materials. For example, recently, the Nest volunteers provided handmade donations to: Boomerang Bags, Uniform4Kids, Women in Crisis, Care kits for Kids, Day for Girls, Rizeup, Aspley Special School, Lovely Lap quilts for the Elderly ,”Purl” Knitting for the Needy, Zillmere Sews, In Stitches, and Restitch.
