We have supported Sutherland Shire Council through Community Equipment Grants since 2013, the amount also being matched by Council. In this time, 24 groups have benefited from the program, making a real difference to the local community.
Last year, eight community organisations shared the grants funds.
One of these winners, Orana Hub Coastal, used the grant to hold an event in Sutherland that connected families who may be doing it tough, with services such as housing, financial counselling, and organisations delivering practical support. They also provided services on the day of the event such as health checks, personal care and social and recreational activities.
