Community grants recipients
Each year we support our community groups and environment by helping make important projects possible through our community grants program. While we help to fund these projects, it’s our community groups who bring them to life – often with a team of passionate volunteers.
Food for Change
This Melbourne-born food charity grows its own fresh produce in Clayton with a team of volunteers, and donates it to local food relief organisations. The grants funding helped it set up a second farm on the Mornington Peninsula and expand its program – meaning more produce to help more people.
Willum Warrain Aboriginal Association
A place of connection and belonging for Aboriginal people, this gathering place in Hastings received a grant to build a fenced billabong – adding to its existing wetlands and helping to heal country with a new home for local fish, insects and wildlife.
Chelsea Heights Community Centre
A grant for the centre’s community garden means that local green thumbs are enjoying new raised garden beds that are more accessible and water efficient– making gardening easier for members with reduced ability.

Baxter Fire Brigade
This local brigade used its community grant to purchase a new defibrillator – which may help to save the life of a community member during cardiac arrest.
Mornington Lifesaving Club
Lifesaving is for everyone at this coastal club. It runs an All Access Nippers program that gives school groups and youth with a disability the opportunity to participate in beach and water activities. It used its community grant to purchase equipment for the program.
