Council Community Sponsorship

Tweed Shire Council provides a range of support and resources, both financial and in-kind to local community groups and organisations. This support is for activities and projects that benefit the health and wellbeing of Tweed Shire residents. The sponsorship agreement acknowledges the contribution Council makes to local community groups and organisations that contribute to community life in the Tweed Shire and respond to local needs and issues.

Priority is given to the objectives identified by the community in the Community Strategic Plan (2017-2027). The most relevant goal within the Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027 is:

"Provide social, cultural and economic opportunities enabling healthy, safer and more inclusive communities"

Applications for the Community Sponsorship Policy open on 14 December 2017 and close on 22 February 2018.
