Chain Reaction Foundation

About Us


Chain Reaction is a civil society organisation, a not-for-profit public company limited by guarantee governed by a Board of Directors. It has a small operating staff working closely with its Partner Organisations and its Honorary Specialist Consultants.  Chain Reaction seeks its funding from grant-making Trusts and Foundations, fee-for-service, corporate, and individual contributions, and government grants.

Working as a catalyst for change together with Partner Organisations drawn from the community, government departments, academe, and business, Chain Reaction offers:

  • A way forward for engaging people in the development of their own communities, see Mt Druitt Learning Ground (MDLG), a local project that can be replicated in other places.
  • Leadership development at local, state and national levels.
  • Building alliances across Partnership Organisations always striving to strengthen local institutions, organisations and communities in the understanding and practise of Social Cohesion.

Chain Reaction's program strives to build "new rooms" for public life, always strengthening citizen participation and leadership.
