Family resilience and trauma

Founded in 1993 Leep was known as TRI Community Exchange, originally being Incorporated as a Family Resource Centre auspiced by Penrith Council. The Centre was part of a national program to improve connections between organisations working with families and communities focusing on access & equity, Aboriginal services and providing information via a Bulletin Board which became communityNet. The service has expanded to provide services the frail aged, people with disability and their carers to access services as well as support those services providing IT support and solutions, cultural competency and volunteer management capacity development.


These services are delivered in Western Sydney and Western NSW.

In June 2016 TRI rebranded to Leep, a group dedicated to creating inclusive communities for people experiencing disadvantage through communityNet, digital inclusion and volunteer solutions.
