Our Clients

Since 2001, Encompass Family and Community has worked with a wide range of agencies providing child and family, domestic and family violence prevention, youth, homelessness, other community services, and health and education services. Organisations include:

  • local agencies
  • Australia-wide entities
  • Commonwealth and state government departments
  • community-based and for-profit
  • Indigenous and multi-cultural agencies.

No job is too small or too large for Encompass.  We have conducted brief one-off facilitated processes for small community agencies.  We have also conducted major projects for Commonwealth departments over many months, requiring consultation with government and other major stakeholders in each state and territory.
