Annual Review 2021/22: Sustain and Strengthen
The ongoing impacts of COVID, coupled with the legacy of bushfires, drought and significant flooding, made FY 2021/22 another difficult year.
Despite this, communities once again pulled together, harnessing the strengths of local people and their connection and commitment to their places to forge head.
Explore this snapshot of our activities and a showcase of the resilience and tenacity of the local leaders who helped sustain and strengthen their communities.
Heartbeat of Rural Australia Research Study
In September 2021, FRRR commissioned the Heartbeat of Rural Australia study, exploring how not-for-profits and community groups in remote, rural and regional Australia are faring, in the wake of nearly two years of constant disruptions. The study was undertaken through The Xfactor Collective Foundation, by specialist member Survey Matters.
Thank you to all the individuals from community groups and not-for-profits in remote, rural and regional Australia who shared their insights in our research survey. You can explore the findings now.
Once again, FRRR is ready to support the recovery of communities across rural Australia that have been affected by the flood emergencies this year. Can you contribute?
Our SRC program provides flexible funding so community leaders can address whatever issues they face. This could range from enhancing local community meeting places to providing resources for a kinder, or even transport for the elderly.
