A Town Team might be a brand new group, an existing community group that aligns with the Town Team Charter or a collection of community groups working to improve a place (for example – a Town Team might form as an umbrella group of community groups in a country town).
It’s free to join the movement and there are no membership fees. See the 4 simple steps to register as a Town Team below.
The only requirement to be a Town Team is to align with and live the Town Team Charter.
The charter is a shared story of what Town Teams are and how they should behave. It helps explain our movement’s collective values and expectations.
It’s a summary of the ‘Town Team Way’.

How to Register as a Town Team
Here is how you can start or register a Town Team.
- Read the Town Team Charter
- Discuss the Town Team Charter with your group. Does your group align with the 6 principles of the charter? If so, please join the movement!
- If your group agrees to align with and live the Charter, please send an email to [email protected] and tell us that you’ll align with the charter, your team’s name (which doesn’t have to include the words “town team”), where you are located and provide relevant contact details and website, social media details etc.
- We’ll then check that and if all is good, register your Town Team
That’s it! There is no paperwork and no membership or affiliation fees. If a group commits and acts in accordance with the charter, then Town Team Movement is happy to assist wherever we can.
Town Team Hub
We’ve developed a Town Team Hub, which has all the best information to help set up, manage and grow a Town Team. The Hub is free for Town Teams to access, but other organisations, including local governments, can access the Resource Hub for $200 + GST per annum for unlimited access. Here are some examples of the How To Guides.
