Supporting the Health and Community Services Industry
Welcome to Community Central
At Community Central we have one simple goal - we provide products and services that save time and money.
Community Central was established in 2007 to support Associations and Not for Profit organisations develop tools and resources that are cost effective and allow organisations to devote their time and resources to the things that matter most.
Key to our success has been assisting other commercial and non-commercial enterprises to tailor their software or products to meet the needs of the Health and Community Services Industry.
Whether it’s our simple and cheap communication solutions, management solutions or financial management systems, Community Central provide commercial quality products designed to meet your specific needs.
We look forward to working with you to keep up the good work you are doing helping to support and sustain Australia's communities.
