We regularly work with our Leaders Council, which has leaders from each community. We assist them to strengthen their communities and ensure that our work is driven by needs identified by communities themselves.
All applications for membership of ChangeMakers must be approved by our Board. Please note, as a refugee background community-led organisation, only refugee background member groups are eligible to become members of ChangeMakers, and vote at our AGM.
Being a member of ChangeMakers also allows your community to have representation on our Leaders Council and participate in our leadership training programmes.
