About CST

Community Services Tablelands (CST) is a non-political and non-sectarian community based not- for- profit organisation, incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act and registered as a charity under the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Act 2012.

CST operations are managed by a Board of Management whose members voluntarily give their time and expertise to ensure the successful operation of the organisation.

CST seeks and receives funding from Commonwealth and State Agencies through grants submissions to enable it to provide services to the community in accordance with our objectives.

CST is sustained by committed members and through support from community businesses and individuals who generously give donations of either time as in volunteering, financial and/or in-kind support of goods or services. Read More
