Community impact

Queensland’s community clubs play a critical role in supporting communities and building a safe, strong and healthy Queensland.  

The surplus generated by community clubs is used to deliver important and highly valued services in their surrounding communities and to visitors to their region. This support includes cash contributions, non-cash benefits, community assets and the mobilisation of volunteers.

While there is an overly simplistic view of community clubs as just liquor and gaming venues, they are important community hubs for social interaction and engagement.  Members have shared values and a sense of belonging and this strengthens the social fabric and promotes strong community cohesion.

There are countless community support programs that exist among Queensland’s community clubs.  Among these, below are some stand out examples of how Queensland’s community clubs are making a difference.
