Welcome to Eastside Community Trust

Join us to make Easton and Lawrence Hill a place of possibility!

We are a place-based community-led organisation, and members are at the heart of what we do. We encourage residents to play an active role in our organisation and welcome anyone over the age of 16 living or working in Easton and Lawrence Hill to join as a member and help support our organisation to achieve our three outcomes:

1. Children will have the freedom to play, experiment and learn; to be healthy, happy and feel part of their community.
2. The community will have healthy, sustainable, welcoming places to connect, socialise, learn and share cultural knowledge.
3. Residents will be informed, have agency to participate in their neighbourhood and city, feel a sense of belonging and take pride in where they live.


  • The chance to shape the work we do and the future of our organisation.
  • An opportunity to help safeguard community assets for the future.
  • An invitation to our Annual General Meeting where you can vote on who is on the board of trustees.
  • Access to support from our team.
  • An invite to quarterly member meetings to inform the direction of the organisation, meet the CEO, staff and board, ask questions and share ideas.
  • The opportunity to contribute feedback on our impact as part of our annual Listening Month.
  • Regular information about our work, the neighbourhood and opportunities to be involved.
  • Invitation to members-only events and training opportunities.
