Stay informed about FRRR’s work and needs in communities

FRRR has two newsletters.

  • FRRR eNews is a monthly publication designed primarily for community groups, although it’s also a good read for all our partners. It features an editorial from our CEO, as well as key information about our grant programs. It’s also how we share best practice and showcase the great work achieved with a little help from an FRRR grant.
  • FRRR Donor News is a quarterly publication that updates our donor partners on our work, and shares insights.
