Community training

Community groups and clubs have a wide range of legal, financial and operational responsibilities. Gympie Regional Council provides free or heavily subsidised training to help community organisations meet these growing expectations.

By attending training, committee members, volunteers and staff can gain new skills so they can better serve their members and the wider community and ensure the longevity of their organisation.

Council encourages community, sport and recreation organisations to attend our training workshops held throughout the year.

Planning better projects to get more grants

Wednesday 25 September 2019, 5:30pm to 8:30pm

Fossickers Room, Gympie Civic Centre

This free workshop will help your club to be on the money when it comes to project planning and grants. Come along to this practical session to gain first-hand

knowledge on how to properly plan your projects so that you can develop better grant applications with a higher chance of success.

Attracting funding is so much easier when you have well-developed, realistic projects; a clear understanding of what you are trying to achieve; good advice and

research; and support where it counts. This session will provide real-life success stories, and traps to avoid.
