New and Evolving Programs

FRRR plays a vital role in responding to current and future needs of rural, regional and remote communities, and in supporting donors who want to help those communities. This year, we launched and reviewed a number of new and current programs and we continue to work on others with our donor partners. A brief snapshot of this work is below.

Education
 

Education

We believe that all Australian children should have the right to a quality education and access to lifelong learning.

This includes access to lifelong learning and skill development, no matter where they live. Our objectives are to reduce educational inequality and build the capacity of our rural and remote schools. For the last three years, we have run the REAPing Rewards program, which was designed to support locally-driven projects and programs that directly benefit people up to 18 years of age, and their educators. We are currently evaluating the areas that need support in terms of education, and expect to relaunch this revised program in the 2016/17 financial year.

Culture, Arts, Tourism & Community Heritage (CATCH) is a program based on the premise that thriving and sustainable local economies are built on diverse assets that directly benefit local residents and help to bring in outside resources. Arts, tourism and community & cultural heritage are critical platforms that many small towns need support to strengthen, and we continue to explore how best to do this.
