Adding to the celebratory feeling of the festive season in December was the news that our application for a Community Inclusion and Participation grant was successful! THis grant will allow us to focus on developing the Befriend Social Network in the southern suburbs (Kwinana area & surrounds)!
We were featured us in the Telegraph Newspaper last week and the response we've had shows the community are equally excited to have us in town!
The grant also gives us the funding to employ a part-time Project Officer "Community Builder" for the next 12 months. If all goes to plan, a year from now we'll have a team of 6-10 new Kwinana-based Event Hosts, regular events happening in the area and hundreds of new members connected. To every potential member who has told us that Befriend is just what you need, but isn't happening in your area...this win is for you.
Applications for the Community Builder position can be found here or under Get To Know Us. Please do check it out, and consider if you or someone you know might be ideal for this opportunity!
