Interview with Jo Moore

The 2020 Community Scorecard results showed our community identified accessing funding for local projects as one of the biggest challenges when looking at the next 10 years. In responding to this, Council has undertaken to invest $10,000 this financial year to trial a new service which will assist local community and sporting groups to access grant research and support.

This service is being delivered through the Bridgetown Family & Community Centre (BFCC). The aim is to provide community and sporting groups access to a designated resource to help guide them in the process of developing a project and identifying suitable funding sources for those projects. The service can also assist in navigating the development of project proposals, funding approaches and implementation advice. The support being provided doesn’t include writing grant applications as Council hopes this service will provide the necessary support for groups to be able to confidently apply for funding in the future.

We recently met with Jo Moore BFCC Centre Manager to hear how this service will be rolled out in the community, including details of upcoming information sessions and how you can access this service.
