Friends of the Community INC funds are obtained by sales of food to events in the community. All of our profits are distributed back into the community. Some of the funding we have ongoing are:

  • Education Support: 2 Yearly Scholarships for Lakelands High Students.
  • Support for students to continue attendance at school by providing uniform and shoes.
  • Homeless Support: In conjunction with St Pats Community Care we provide some funding to allow Tafe attendance for those wanting to regain independent living.
  • Health and Wellbeing Support: Some funding is available to supplement Alternative Medicine.
  • Sporting Clubs engaging Youth Support: At present we support 4 sporting clubs with an array of items such as sponsorship shirts, kits, balls, food, and special items required on the grounds.
  • Ongoing support for Starlight Children Foundation Make a Wish Library resources for Non English Speaking Community Members. Assistance with resources for new migrants through play and reading.
  • People with Disability Support: Independent Living Items to remain in their homes.
  • There are many more supported service we provide as well.
  • What Friends of the Community DO NOT do is: individual support/requests.

    All Support/request must be via other reputable agencies. All requests will be given useful concessions information and other ways of getting by on low income with information on new services and programs that may be able to support the request. Friends of the Community INC has at their disposal a guide to concessions and other information to keep costs down.
