We’ve made some changes to our Grants Policy

We want to give more certainty to community groups for activities that align well with our community outcomes and from next financial year propose to enter into partnership arrangements for multi-year or operational funding.

This will also make it clear the amount of grant budget that has been allocated to such arrangements and how much contestable funds remain for other applications.

Other changes to the policy include amendments to the eligibility and assessment criteria so that we can support those causes most important to us and bringing Community Board and Māori Standing Committee grants together under the one policy.

SWDC is proud to support Neighbours Day Aotearoa.

Supporting the reduction of loneliness and isolation experienced by many members in our communities is especially important for our elderly and vulnerable population post COVID-19, and in the event of another possible lockdown. Making it easier for members of neighbourhoods and community groups to contact each other, can be a simple yet powerful way to support the building of community connections, networks, wellbeing and resilience.

SWDC is also supporting two events for Neighbours Day Aotearoa, the first being this Saturday!

Meet your Neighbours Plant Swap and Sale at the Cobblestones Museum, 169 Main Street, Greytown!
