Welfare - Church Resources

Together supporting Australians in need - tailored supply solutions for disabled and disadvantaged individuals, families and communities

We're lucky to live in Australia, a country that has traditionally supported people living in disadvantaged circumstances. For more than sixteen years Church Resources has led the way by providing quality supply solutions to support families and individuals who are less fortunate than most others. At the core of CR's missions is empowering not-for-profit organisations to devote their time and resources to the people who need support. We achieve this by working behind the scenes with suppliers to negotiate preferential service and consistent value for all our Members.

Success Stories

Success Stories

"Accessing the collective spend of Church Resources benefited a not-for-profit such as Playgroup Queensland in a number of ways, the most important of which was saving money on expenditure that could be better used connecting children, families and communities. The ability to access better pricing for the likes of electrical, white and brown goods via Church Resources’ partnership with The Good Guys is extremely welcome. Playgroup Queensland can now better use its precious time and funds doing what it does best rather than sourcing quotes for products needed to run an organisation."

Ian Coombe
CEO - Playgroup Queensland
