Founded in WA, Town Team Movement is a non-profit organisation that empowers people to act local and create more vibrant places to live, work and connect in their town or suburb.

Town Teams work collaboratively to identify opportunities for enhancements and beautification to their neighbourhoods, with more than 90 Town Teams across WA. Each group is made up of local people and business owners who volunteer their time to reimagine and refresh public spaces and showcase a sense of belonging to their towns or suburbs.

Town Teams use community placemaking to achieve these projects. Placemaking is not government-led but people-led, and is a practical hands-on process for creating places that people will love and feel connected to.

Town Team Movement recently celebrated 100 Town Teams milestone by launching the ‘Book of doing’ which showcases actions completed by Town Teams across Australia. When RAC’s Principal Partnership began, there were only 20 Town Teams, since then the movement has grown exponentially! To download a PDF version of the book, click below.
