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.
