We’re all about empowering local people to take charge of their communities! We believe that the best communities are created from within, by the people who live and work there. 

That’s why we exist – to support and encourage amazing people just like you to take the lead in building the kind of community you want to see.

We’re like the coach on the sidelines, cheering you on and providing you with the tools and confidence you need to do the things you care about, with other people who care about them too

Share your hobbies, make some friends, build your community!

The Befriend Social Network is one way for you to sweeten your social life and spark new friendships here in Perth. And hobbies are a great way to do just that! Book clubs, yoga, dog walks, cycling, board games… whatever it is that YOU care about, you can assume other people care about it, too.

Take these superstars, Harry and Amy! They’ve been passionate Dungeons & Dragons players for years, and wanted to find a way to guide other people into the hobby. So they started hosting an open-invitation D&D group for beginners. The results… ✨💥🤓

Join the team as our Campaign Lead!


We’re currently looking for an experienced communications wizard to design and implement a short-term campaign to support our expanding service offering!


Applications close Sunday 26th March 2023 at 11:59pm… good luck!

Do you work or volunteer in the community sector?

We’re on a mission to build a collective of do-ers and dreamers who are passionate about making the world a more connected and inclusive place.

We recognise that we’re all working towards the same goals and we have so much to share with each other that could enhance our collective impact across Australia’s communities. We’re designing a prototype of a collaborative learning space (could be in-person, could be digital, could be a magic combo of both!) where we can share our best practices, community building frameworks, tips and tricks, overcome common challenges, and grow in our capabilities, together.

We’d love your input on what this space could look like, so it’s useful for you in your work context.
