SCCU Presents 2017 Community Grants

Each year we offer three grants to groups working on a project or event that benefits our local communities in the areas of Art & Culture, Education, Sport & Recreation, Environment and Health & Well-being.  As the awarding of our Community Grants for 2017 draws to a close we take a look at the successful recipients and how they plan to use their grants to benefit our local communities.

Tweed District Rescue Squad

As a volunteer responder to rescue situations, many people wouldn't hear about the critical work that TDRS do until they, or someone they know, experiences it first hand.  Their Community Grant will be used to purchase two Automatic External Defibrillators that will help in instances of cardiac arrest.  

For more information on the work TDRS do check out their Facebook page

Future Dreamers

Future Dreamers is an inspiration hub championing positive futures for girls and young women 12-25 years old. They offer a range of engaging and uplifting workshops that encourage personal development, social connection and educational/vocational support.  Each school holidays, Future Dreamers put on a variety of workshops and activities for girls, so they can enjoy themselves in a relaxed and nurturing environment whilst experiencing something new. This year we were pleased to be able to help fund their 2018 Summer Holiday Program.

Enova Community

Enova Community is the not-for-profit arm of Enova Community Energy Ltd, a social enterprise creating energy aware communities in NSW to protect the natural environment and lower energy costs for the welfare of all.Their Community Grant will be used to help drive the 2018 Repower Byron Shire Project which aims to engage, educate, inspire and empower ten street communities (100 households) in Mullumbimby, to take control of their energy use and commit to using 100% renewable energy.

Once the project has been deployed successfully and a robust model for data collection and participant feedback has been established, Stage two will see the project replicated in other areas of Byron Shire.  Repower Byron Shire is a major part of ENOVA Community's long term vision, to create a 100% Renewable Energy Byron Shire by 2025.

Details of our 2018 Community Grants program will be published on our website later in the year, so if you know of a project or group that would benefit, let us know!
