The Shire works in partnership with community groups to deliver a range of programs and initiatives to local young people. The Youth Engagement Partnership Fund provides a funding pool of up to $35,000 each financial year to community groups delivering initiatives that are aligned to the objectives of the Shire's youth services model.
Funded initiatives will be community driven and actively engage young people, developing their personal and life skills and increasing opportunities for participation. Programs that build resilience and enable young people to connect whilst having fun will be highly regarded.
Applications open on 1 July 2021 and are open on an ongoing basis, however please allow up to 12 weeks for your project to be considered by the Shire.
Please refer to the Funding Guidelines for further information about the Youth Engagement Partnership Fund.
