2017 so far…
August already! The first half of this year has flown – it has been a busy and productive start to 2017. We have been busily preparing for the Census update,expanding our team and updating our platform.
ABS Census Update
Exciting times here, as we get stuck into the new Census data!
We are working hard to be one of the first organisations to have this data available to our clients – Please note that although the first round of data has been released, we are still waiting on the ABS to release more detailed tables. We will be uploading as soon as the data comes to hand so stay tuned!

Excitingly, our Interfaith calendar has now been transferred to an online format – you can view upcoming events and download the calendar from our CultureMate website. A great resource and free – Make sure to check it out here!
