AVID Community and Initiatives

AVID’s core purpose is to create places where people live, work and spend their leisure time. However, we know that ‘place making’ is much more than physical infrastructure alone. Our focus is on creating connected communities, places where people have a sense of belonging, true neighbourhoods.

We foster community through the creation of local events and activities hosted in our parks, by contributing ideas and resources to community clubs and schools, and by energetically contributing to conversation via social media, meetings and workshops. We also give back to the communities in which we live and work by focusing sponsorship contributions on local needs.


AVID Community Sponsorship and Grants Program

We are contributing to community not just with a static sponsorship approach but with meaningful infrastructure investment and participation in community development, environmental and sustainability initiatives.

As part of our commitment to building connected communities, AVID is proud to support several local charities, organisations and sporting groups at each project.
