Community Business Bureau
What does this organisation do?
Community Business Bureau (CBB) is a unique organisation with a clear purpose to help the not for profit sector achieve its social objectives. We do this by providing personalised, professional and cost-effective finance, HR, marketing and salary packaging services focused on building capacity and enhancing sustainability. We provide our services to over 450 not for profit organisations across Australia, and around 17,000 people working in the not for profit sector.
We channel our surplus profits back into the sector through our Community Development Program, which since 2005 has given back more than $1.5 million in cash grants, funding and scholarships.
CBB was formed on 1 July 1995, as a wholly independent incorporated organisation, evolving from the restructuring of the Spastic Centres of South Australia. Through restructuring, separate agencies were formed and CBB was established to service the administration requirements within the community services sector, in particular to meet their payroll and financial needs.
People with a disability or chronic health issue
Living with a disability or long term or chronic health issue can severely affect our wellbeing through unemployment or underemployment, social isolation or exclusion and poor mental or physical health.
Low income families and the long term unemployed
Employment is a significant factor in our wellbeing. Employment provides financial independence, improves our physical and mental health, expands our social networks and builds our skills.
On the flip side, long term unemployment or underemployment negatively impacts our wellbeing. It contributes to poor mental and physical health, social isolation and poverty. And it can negatively impact the wellbeing of our children.
