Community Training & Support

Community Training and Support Programs

Support for the community is one of the key pillars of the Babinda and District Community Association. As well as being a Centrelink Agent, the organisation develops and hosts various information sessions, programs and traineeships specific to our community needs. These programs are generally aimed at the unemployed, seniors, youth and families.  The Babinda and District Community Association also helps to coordinate annual community events.

Business Support

Business Support

Another significant pillar for the organisation is economic development and sustainability. For success in this regard it is essential that the businesses and community organisations throughout the district have a cohesive relationship.
