5 NEW organisations awarded funding in 2020

In 2020 we awarded seed funding to start up new With One Voice programs to 5 organisations around Australia. They are:

1.      Bidwill Uniting – Mt Druitt (NSW)

2.      Community Application – Mackay (QLD)

3.      Community Connections – Adelaide CBD (SA)

4.      Community Application – Shepparton (VIC)

5.      Hume Housing – Parramatta (NSW)

Local community groups, social businesses and not-for-profits wanting to promote social inclusion and tackle loneliness, isolation, depression and disadvantage in their community are invited to apply. Additionally, each successful application joins a 12-month intensive mentoring program.

All successful Start-up Grant organisations are located in areas that are culturally and economically diverse and seek to redress balance between those that have and have-not. They provide crucial interventions for all participants and support those directly and indirectly affected by many of life’s challenges.

Most importantly, these organisations recognise how singing in a group can be improve wellbeing, inspire personal growth and transform communities.  Each successful applicant must present a strong social franchise offer that we believe will be successful and sustainable.
