Town Team Movement has a consultancy arm called ‘The Place Team’. We work with local governments, developers, State Government agencies and redevelopment authorities on a fee for service basis. It’s one of the ways we fund our place and community development work.
We deliver high quality professional services and work with your organisation and community in a positive, interactive and fun way.
We think it is important to understand and upgrade the ‘software’ as well as the ‘hardware’ of places.

Why Engage Us?
The Place Team / Town Team Movement is a non-profit company. We don’t have shareholders. All net revenue generated is spent on supporting, connecting and promoting Town Teams (community-led place making groups) and creating better places.
Appointing us to help deliver your projects will help to support and benefit local communities.
What is Social Procurement?
Social procurement is when organisations use their buying power to generate social value above and beyond the value of the goods, services or construction being procured (taken from the Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework – Buyer Guidance).
There is a growing national and international focus on the strategic use of procurement to deliver social, economic and environmental outcomes. Although social procurement is not new, it is increasingly recognised as an important tool for governments to:
- leverage their purchasing power to achieve broader public policy objectives;
- increase opportunities and expand markets for ‘social enterprises’;
- influence mainstream suppliers (i.e. suppliers that are not social enterprises) to prioritise social value creation; and
- drive competition, promote innovation and provide all suppliers with a full and fair opportunity to compete.
