Government support for community associations and other interest groups has diminished over the past five years. While some sectors of the industry have recorded declining income, the variety of organisations and groups that operate in the industry has helped limit these falls.

Overall, industry revenue is estimated to increase at an annualised 0.9% over the five years through 2015-16, to $8.9 billion.
