Disaster resilience and youth mentoring for OS

Disaster resilience and youth mentoring for OS

Echo Daily

Ocean Shores residents are set to benefit from a $40,000 grant as part of the NSW disaster resilient and future ready (DR:FR) Get Ready program. 

Wee Waa and North Richmond were the other NSW communities that participated in the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) program.

The funding has been split between a program which aims to engage local youth, and another that will play a role in the disaster preparation process, including a map identifying local flood and bushfire risk areas and identifying important community information.

Byron Youth Service’s Ocean Shores Youth Response Team (OSYRT) say they will be using $25,000 of the grant to run five weeks of skills-building and awareness workshops for local youth. 

This will include sessions from a local Indigenous facilitator, and aims to boost their morale and self-confidence and provide an opportunity to role model positive behaviours for younger students.

FRRR NEWSLETTER May 2020

FRRR NEWSLETTER May 2020

Hello everyone,

As I write this, it is the beginning of National Reconciliation Week. In the spirit of reconciliation, FRRR acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which our programs are delivered, and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to their Elders - past, present and emerging. We encourage everyone to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. As I reflect on the extraordinary times we continue to experience as a nation and global community, it seems especially appropriate that this year's theme is In This Together - as we certainly are.

FRRR NEWSLETTER April 2020

FRRR NEWSLETTER April 2020

I hope that you are reading this in good health and adjusting to our temporary new normal. Rural communities are experts in remote working and living and while we wouldn’t wish for this situation, it has created a window of greater empathy for the daily challenges that distance can present to delivering services and staying connected and well. One might say this is rural Australia’s time to shine, as rural Australia will be a big part of the COVID-19 recovery and I’m looking forward to FRRR supporting locally-led initiatives that will strengthen their vibrancy and prosperity.
