New program to assist with community projects

Media Release Issued:
Monday, January 13, 2020

Wellington Shire Council has introduced a new way to help community groups and individuals organise successful community projects.

Through the Community Collaborations Program, communities who have a project idea that provides broad community benefit may request for Council support and advice.

Wellington Shire Council Mayor Alan Hall said the new program would better support those with great ideas see their projects through to fruition.

“An individual or group may come to Council seeking advice on how to progress a project idea or how to assist their own community to create, develop and manage their own projects,” he said.

“They may require advice on potential funding sources or appropriate state or local authorities that may assist with their project idea.

“Where there is a direct alignment with Council’s strategies and policies, Council may also participate in the work of the community project.

“This program will assist people with the next steps.”

The Community Collaborations program also offers a series of free community sessions for different sectors of community throughout the year including current offerings of “Placemaking in Your Community” and “Crowdfunding for Community Groups” sessions.
