2019 Community Projects Announced
Four community projects will be delivered this year by the LGSC 2019 participants, the projects will provide support to a variety of groups in our South West community.
Creating intergenerational connection Cycling Without Age aims to facilitate social interaction. The goal is acquisition of a special bike to carry up to two passengers to transport the elderly in order to tackle isolation issues and improving their health and well-being via regular outdoor experiences.
Aiming to improve mental health and social inclusion the Veterans Retreat is a weekend of activities for veterans where they can interact and learn what the Great South Coast region has to offer and how they can engage in community.
EATS Great South Coast will scope support needed to showcase the regions produce increasing tourism.
Finally empowering community to go solar and generate annual income to keep community projects happening, Community Owned Solar will create the opportunity for community groups and building owners to work together to promote solar and community projects in the region.
A busy year ahead for the participants of the 2019 LGSC program, the journey has just started. Keep an eye on our Projects page for more updates about our evolving projects.
