In a year that has tested all aspects of Canberra’s wellbeing, Canberrans have pulled together and risen to the challenge. We have been reminded of our responsibilities to each other and the power of community.
Connect in Canberra is an information hub to help you stay in the loop, keep connected, be part of your community and get assistance and support if you need it. We’ve pulled together information from across Government and the community in a range of areas, from finding the right support to getting involved in your community to keeping occupied and active.
We want Connect in Canberra to be a really useful resource for our community. If you are aware of any information, resources or events that you think we should share here we want to hear from you. You can email the team at ConnectInCanberra@act.gov.au
As we face a challenge like no other, Canberra is stronger together.

More support for Canberra’s recovery
Strengthening community connections part of Canberra community’s next steps in recovery
On 18 June 2020, Minister for Community Recovery Susan Orr announced further steps in Canberra’s recovery with a focus on supporting community connections and grassroots activity.
While restrictions are easing there are still Canberrans who will feel the effects of COVID for a long time to come. The highest impacts felt by our young people, those experiencing social isolation, and those who have lost work.
The ACT Government will be implementing a broad range of activities over three phases under Canberra’s Community Recover Roadmap and we will be working closely with community partners, to rebuild an inclusive community where Canberrans feel they belong, are valued and can contribute.
