Training opportunities for community groups

Each year, we offer free community training workshops to support not-for-profit community groups and clubs that deliver activities, programs and services in Knox.

The workshops provide opportunities for members and volunteers to develop new skills. In the coming weeks you can learn how to apply for Council grants, create compelling project ideas, pick up some new tips for your grant application or encourage more volunteers. Workshops also offer a great way to meet and network with other community group members.

With the annual Community Development Fund opening on 1 April 2024, now is the time for community groups to get grant ready.

This is your chance to apply for up to $20,000 to go towards a local community group or club project.
