Hands Across Canberra's role is to encourage Canberrans to think about being generous locally.  To help our large community sector get access to much needed funds Hands Across Canberra raises money which is then allocated to those community organisations doing great work with our most vulnerable people. Every year, Hands Across Canberra grants support build healthy, vibrant, and livable communities.
