$10,000 Community Grant

We are thrilled to announce that we have been named as one of the 200 Westpac Foundation Community Grant recipients for 2018.

This will provide support for our ‘Recipes for Belonging’ Social Inclusion program, which creates opportunities for SCARF volunteers and refugee entrants to exchange knowledge and cultural traditions, support each other and share stories of learning and resilience. The $10,000 grant will help SCARF reach newly arriving families, including over 30 families (114 individuals) that we’ve welcomed to the Illawarra in 2018 from Afghanistan, Burundi, Congo, Myanmar, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iraq, Syria and Togo.

It will also ensure we can continue our weekly Coffee Community Connections program, and host three women & girls social evenings in 2019.
