A community that gives back

Grants and sponsorships can be a powerful resource for community groups to contribute to their area and make a positive impact on the lives of local residents. 

Let’s take a look at some of the previous 2022 grant recipients, and find out how they have used their grants to make change here in the Moreton Bay region!

 Zero Positive for Schools
Zero Positive’s youth advisory board GenZero are being trained to become the first in Australia to become climate ‘anxiety to agency’ facilitators. The not-for-profit organisation received a $5000 grant towards training through Force of Nature, which would assist them in the delivery of their newfound knowledge and expertise to students, with workshops at three local Moreton Bay high schools. These workshops provide schools and their communities with the right tools, education and support to reduce emissions and become climate positive. On completion, the program will see up to 75 senior high school students benefit from the workshops delivered

Friends of Lagoon Creek Group Incorporated
The Friends of Lagoon Creek Group applied for funding for their native bee conservation program, and received a $2,500 grant to help the initiative. 

The project includes community workshops that educate the public on native bee species, and advice on supporting the conservation of bees through gardening. The group also create bee habitat within the reserve in regeneration areas, and undertake a native bee survey once a year.

Reclink Australia
Reclink Australia received $2,577 in grant funding towards Cultural Awareness training and knowledge sharing of conservation practices workshop, between the Kabi Kabi Aboriginal Corporation and their Moreton Bay conservation trainees.

Trainees learned all about revegetation, different species of plants and developed new knowledge and appreciation of indigenous practices, which would go on to inform the creation of a small bush tucker garden at the Reclink Caboolture community site. The garden is open to the public and also co-located with other community groups such as PCYC, Better Together Inc and Lions Club, who also benefit from the garden project. Participants are all local job seekers of the Moreton region. 

In Moreton Bay, Reclink deliver work skills traineeships funded by the State Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative, offering ‘on the job’ work experience to build their skills and confidence, and help transition them into mainstream employment. Participants at Reclink are all local jobseekers of the Moreton Bay region.
