Supporting those who give much to our community

In recognition of the enormous offerings people make in volunteering time and giving generously to community, in particular those who run critical local support and community services, the Buloke Shire Council has initiated a new program to acknowledge and support them.

Delivered by Make a Change, ‘Buloke, celebrating great people doing great things’, is a new program to raise awareness, introduce new ideas, expand existing initiatives, create new outcomes, and invite broader participation in the Buloke region.

Who can access the support?

All residents, businesses and organisations are invited to take part and it is all for the benefit of residents, neighbourhoods, towns, and the whole community.

Those already involved in local groups and actively contributing, are encouraged to take part as well as those thinking about ideas for new projects, or who are simply curious to know more.

This program will support you to be more effective in your goals, both personal and public.
