The development of this fund was inspired by numerous requests for assistance for community-led events such as family fun days, community celebrations and summer picnics along with events that have arisen in response to specific issues, e.g. a community who had experienced a number of tragic events decided to run a Family Fun Day to encourage their community to focus on the ‘good and positive’ about themselves.

Accessible and collaborative community events are an essential part of developing a sense of belonging and community. They encourage neighbourly relationships and establishing links that build and strengthen communities and families overall.

This Rural Community Event Fund has been developed to allow us the flexibility to provide financial support within a short time-frame.
