Look Over the Farm Gate - 2018-19 Drought Support - Closing 30 November 2019!

Look Over the Farm Gate is a mental health and wellbeing initiative that delivers grants for community events and mental health training.

Community groups, local government, and VFF branches are encouraged to apply for grants of up to $1,500 to run social events and community initiatives that bring together neighbours and the community to spend some time off farm to relax with family and friends.

The Look Over the Farm Gate grants can fund once-off events or a series of events. Events can range from a free community barbeque, regular fitness meet-ups, community tree planting, or a family movie night – whatever your community needs to come together and take a break.

To determine if you reside in a shire that is eligible for a grant go to https://lookoverthefarmgate.org.au/about/

Applications from neighbouring shires will also be considered. Please email lookoverthefarmgate@vff.org.au or call 1300 882 833 to discuss your eligibility.
