Visy Tumut Region Recovery Fund

The Pratt Foundation has partnered with FRRR to support the delivery of a $1 million Visy Tumut Region Recovery Fund. This support is for local not-for-profit organisations and community groups which are delivering locally-led projects and activities that endeavour to support people in the Snowy Valleys Council region with their recovery as a result of the 2019/2020 bushfires.

Through the provision of grants, this program aims to address a range of needs, including but not limited to:

  • Mental health and wellbeing;
  • Environmental and wildlife recovery and rehabilitation;
  • Strengthening social connectedness and reducing social isolation;
  • Culturally appropriate activities and resources for impacted communities;
  • Community infrastructure and equipment that strengthens volunteer community groups and their activities;
  • Community-based therapeutic programs and activities such as arts, theatre, gardening, community dinners, or informal mentoring and peer support groups, which engage vulnerable and at-risk members of the community.
