Calling all community groups for a share in $25,000

July 26, 2018

Playford Alive is calling for community groups to apply for a share in $25,000 from the Playford Alive Initiatives Fund, with submissions opening today.

Renewal SA General Manager Property, Mark Devine said the Playford Alive Initiatives Fund supports groups that make a positive difference to the lives of people in Adelaide’s northern suburbs.

“The funds can help turn good ideas that benefit the community into reality,” Mr Devine said.

“Since the fund was established in 2009, over $845,000 has been provided to benefit the Playford Alive community.”

The Playford Alive Initiatives Fund helps organisations to grow through the work of the successful applicants and support projects to make a positive contribution to the community.

The funding can be used to provide training and skills to those seeking opportunities in the local community and provide a better quality of life for this important part of Adelaide.

Playford Alive Initiatives Fund Chairman, Mayor Glenn Docherty said we have been able to support and strengthen community groups through a diverse range of projects.

“It is wonderful to see people actively participating in the community, donating their time and skills and contributing to the goodwill of the community which makes Playford a wonderful place to live, work and play,” Mayor Docherty said.

“The Playford Alive Initiatives Fund has been providing funding to community groups and individuals, who are helping to deliver key community projects that enhance the social, economic and environmental well-being of the Playford Alive community.”

“I welcome the eleventh round of applications, the Board is looking forward to receiving another lot of quality applications for a variety of projects that will benefit the Playford Alive community.”

The submissions are open to individuals, groups or organisations who live in the Playford Alive project area (Smithfield Plains, Davoren Park, Munno Para, Andrews Farm and Eyre) and who are actively involved in giving back to their community.

Submissions will be evaluated by the Playford Alive Initiatives Fund Board, which comprises representatives from Renewal SA, the South Australian Housing Authority and the City of Playford.

The eleventh round is open from 23 July and close 17 August 2018.

The recipients will be announced at the Stretton Centre, Peachey Road, Munno Para on Wednesday 17 October 2018 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
