Community Support Frankston is an accredited charitable institutionClick to see details registered with the Australian Government.
Community Support Frankston Inc. is a not for profit community support agency which provides services including emergency food, grocery vouchers, help with utility bills, referrals and advocacy for people who live, or work in the City of Frankston. CSF is one of the busiest agencies of its type in Victoria - with nearly 13,000 people contacting the organisation for assistance last year.
The agency aims to provide people with information, advice and skills so they gain the ability to make more effective life choices within their community. Services are cost-effective because we have approximately 80 volunteer community workers from a wide range of social, political, religious, cultural and work backgrounds who provide their time and services free of charge.
Volunteer workers who have direct contact with the public in a support role must be accredited, which entails successfully completing a 50 hour training course. For more information see Volunteering.
The Frankston City Council is also a major supporter - providing our premises, four paid staffing positions along with telephone and electricity.
Board of Management Members The CSF Board of Management meets monthly and has an administration and policy-making role.
