New Kitchen at Weymouth

A community driven project has led to a major kitchen upgrade for a popular north east coast community, with major funding from the TCF.

Tasmanian Community Fund Board members and the SEO visited Nubeena to discuss the needs and priorities of the Tasman with community members and to provide information on how community groups can access funds from the TCF.

Our thanks to everyone who attended the Community Forum for their willingness to share their stories and ideas. We hope that the discussions started at the session can continue and we look forward to talking further when the ideas have solidified.

Our thanks also to the Tasman Council for allowing us to use their Council Chambers for the forum.

2021 Emerging Community Leaders Underway

The 2021 Emerging Community Leaders program is underway.

The participants from around Tasmania took part in residential one in February 2020 but, due to Covid, the 2020 program was put on hold.  2020 cohort have reconvened for the 2021 program and the growth of each individual in that twelve month period and the level of connection across the group was very evident when they gathered for the first 2021 residential at Grindelwald.

This years program is being delivered by the Tasmanian Community Fund in partnership with Tony Chapman and Rikki Mawad.

We look forward to sharing the participants stories with you over the coming months.
