About us

The Catalyst for Community Change

Changing Minds is a 100% volunteer led, non-profit youth and community development organisation.  We work from the ground up to support individual “operatives”, grassroots collectives, social enterprise and community organisations, to be more effective in making lasting change possible. We primarily focus on building capacity within the grassroots youth community, supporting the development and implementation of initiatives and approaches that address youth mental health and wellbeing.  We help to unlock the community’s existing potential through providing access to the skills and support required to bring about lasting, meaningful community transformation.

It all starts with a focus on what’s strong, not what’s wrong!

Our delivery strategy and practice is informed by principles of Asset Based Community Development, exemplified in a “ground up”, solution focused community empowering approach that increases capacity within the community, fosters inter-sectorial collaboration and achieves long term community transformation.

Our services are focussed on supporting the community to be proficient in creating lasting change from the ground up, through the provision of accessible consultation and mentoring services supporting project and service design and development, organisational development and the delivery of cutting edge social innovation, enterprise and design training programs, primarily for young people aged 18 to 30, but also for older people engaging in the change making space.
