Are you a community mover and shaker?

Creativity Australia have Grants of up to $10,000 available now for you!

Local community groups, social businesses and not-for-profits wanting to promote social inclusion and tackle loneliness, isolation and disadvantage in their community are invited to apply.

Additionally, each successful application joins a 12-month intensive mentoring program. Creativity Australia has awarded 7 community organisations with up to $10,000 in start-up grants to start their own With One Voice programs over the past 18 months.

Successful community organisations to receive up to $10,000 in seed funding to start up new With One Voice programs include: • Community Application from Kingston Park – Adelaide • LHAC (Let’s Have a Chat) Inc. from Queensland’s Gold Coast. • New Horizons from Chatswood Sydney All successful Start-up Grant organisations are located in areas that are diverse in culture and nationality and seek to redress balance between those that have and have not.

They all provide crucial interventions for all people and support to those directly and indirectly affected by many of life’s challenges. Most importantly, these organisations recognise how singing in a group can be transformative, inspire personal growth, and each presented a strong social franchise offer that will be successful and sustainable.

One of our last round winners from Chatswood NSW says; “The With One Voice program was the answer we were looking for to bring all areas of our community together. The information we receive during our mentoring sessions is invaluable and provides us the tools we need to sustain our group for years to come. We feel supported and nurtured at every step of the process. We are already seeing great results in not just our singing but in our relationships within the choir and of course, in the wider community.”
