About us

Borderlands Cooperative is a non-profit organisation involved in community, social and international development, ecological sustainability and social justice. Amongst other things, we provide consultancy to service providers, government and community organisations in the form of program, service and organisational evaluation, social impact research and needs analysis. Building in sustainability measures and assessment has been a central feature of our social impact research and evaluation of projects and programs. Our work is research-based and favours participatory approaches to research and evaluation. We have an extensive library of current journals, government policy and research literature as well as membership in the Association of Researchers in Voluntary and Community Work (ARVAC – UK), Volunteering Victoria, and Action Research Issues Association, ALARPM, and our consultants have individual membership in several other professional associations and other networks.

The Borderlands’ Teams are experienced independent researchers and consultants, used to working collaboratively as a team and this allows us to draw upon and complement our particular skills efficiently and effectively, whilst extending our collective expertise and building of relationships across organisations.
