Community grants boost local groups

Thirty-three Scenic Rim community organisations will share in Council funding as part of the latest round of Community Grants.

Corporate and Community Services Committee chair Cr Virginia West said funding provided in the first round of the 2017-18 program would support groups and organisations which helped to enrich the life of Scenic Rim communities.

A range of in-kind support was provided by Council to 13 groups for the use of venues, tents and waste bin services.

"All of these groups and organisations, many of which rely mostly on volunteers, make an invaluable contribution to community life across our region," Cr West said.

"Our popular Community Grants Program is an investment in events and organisations which help to achieve the shared Community Plan vision for healthy, engaged and resourceful communities.

"Such organisations represent vital threads in the social fabric of our towns and villages and their contribution to their local communities helps to make our region such a great place to live."
