About Us

We are a living community!

With a long history and bright future, this organisation will continue to provide a sphere for families and individuals to come together and share friendship and direct support for one another in solidarity of common heritage and destiny.

The support of our members enables us to in turn support our people through perusing the Constitutional Objectives of the British Australian Community. This is achieved not only by promoting and facilitating local activities but by being a voice for our people and representing ourselves in state and federal matters through ongoing advocacy.

From our foundation in 1967 as The United Kingdom Settlers’ Association this organisation has operated with the same core values we have today. Having evolved over the changing landscape of our nation the UKSA, now known as the British Australian Community, is still going strong today, promoting the ongoing contributions to Australia of British Isles migrants and their descendants.
