Delivering evidence-based interventions that empower communities

Collective Action is a social impact consultancy specialising in designing, implementing, and evaluating community-centred, evidence-based interventions that empower individuals and communities facing discrimination and structural disadvantage.

We work across the program cycle to increase the impact of community-centred programs, including through formative and social research, program design, monitoring and evaluation, policy and advocacy, and staff training and development.

Our specialists do more than provide short-term technical advice. Through an action-learning approach, they share knowledge, skills, and resources to help build capacity for our clients over the long term. We build genuine and lasting partnerships with our clients, which is why more than half of the organisations we work with are repeat clients.

We work with a diverse range of international development actors in Australia and across the globe, including in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Cambodia, Zimbabwe, and the Occupied Palestinian Territory. We have experience reporting to a range of donors, including Australian national and state government departments including Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, as well as USAID, the European Union, and the United Nations.
