We are Community Information and Support Victoria (CISVic), the peak body representing 60 community based, not-for-profit agencies. Our agencies collectively provide free services to over 300,000 people every year.

CISVic provides operational support, sector development and representation & advocacy for the information and support sector.  CISVic members enjoy a wide range of benefits.  Membership may extend to organisations, local government, companies and businesses and individuals.

There are three categories of membership:

  • Full members enjoy the whole range of benefits,
  • Associate members enjoy most of the benefits excluding voting rights (but may be co-opted member of the Committee of Management),
  • Individual membership.

Membership with CISVic requires that agencies provide information & support as a core part of service delivery, and that agencies agree to support CISVic’s statement of purposes and comply with the Standards and Policies of the Association.  In addition, full members enjoy voting rights in CISVic elections to help direct the future of the organisation; Committee of Management & Working Group eligibility to actively participate in leading the sector.

One voice for many

We liaise with all tiers of government and other peak bodies, conduct training and undertake research on behalf of our members.

We provide a voice for the members and the communities they work with.
