190721: Tackle Cyberbullying Grants – closing 21st July

The deadline for applications has been extended to midnight on 21 July 2019, to ensure community organisations and young people who wish to apply have as much opportunity to do so as possible.

The Tackle Cyberbullying Grants Program offers young Queenslanders aged 10-17 and community organisations the unique opportunity to apply for grants to develop and deliver local initiatives to address online bullying in their community.

Grants of $500 to $1,500 are available to young Queenslanders, while community organisations can apply for grants of $1,500 to $5,000.

Grants will be awarded to successful applicants to implement programs between
15 September and 15 December 2019.

 

Tackle Cyberbullying Grants now open

Community organisations and young Queenslanders can now apply for grants to fund initiatives to help tackle cyberbullying.

Queenslanders aged 10-17 can apply for grants of $500 to $1,500, while community organisations can apply for grants of $1,500 to $5,000.

Grants can be used to fund a variety of projects that aim to address cyberbullying, such as:

organising games, activities and youth programs
creating information resources, artwork, videos, films, poetry, books or t-shirt designs
developing computer games, online programs, websites, apps or social media campaigns
other creative ideas that will help tackle cyberbullying.

Young people will need a sponsoring organisation—such as a sporting group, community organisation or school P&C— to assist them with managing the grant funding.

Community organisations are encouraged to apply independently and/or consider sponsoring a young person and helping them develop and deliver their ideas.

If you are a local council, a for-profit organisations or a community member with an interest, we’d love your help to spread the message to young people you connect with and your networks.

Grants will be awarded to successful applicants to implement activities between 15 August and 15 November 2019.

Applications close at midnight, 23 June 2019.

191210: Roma Toy Library – 2nd Tuesday of Each Month

Roma Toy LibraryToy Library Dates

We will be open from 9-11am on the second Tuesday of every month at the Church of Christ, 119 Currey St, Roma. Membership is free and families can borrow 3 sets of toys per month. Come and enjoy!

The Roma Toy Library, offers families of all income levels free access to a library of high-quality educational toys on loan to children aged 0-5 years.

We accept donations of good used toys, ranging from wooden toys to outdoor gross motor toys. Categories include sand play, water play, musical play, pretend play, pretend play (eg animal figurines, doll houses, dress up clothes, pretend food), outdoor gross motor play (eg tricycles, see-saws, skipping rope), fine motor play (eg threading wooden beads, wooden blocks), play with words (eg finger puppets, themed puzzles).

General guidelines for donated toys:

  1. Favour natural materials where possible. These are often more durable than plastic and provide a more varied tactile experience for children.
  2. Toys must durable enough (i.e. of high enough quality) to withstand repeated use by multiple families over the years.
  3. Favour toys that are ‘passive’ and allow the child to play actively. This means usually avoiding electronic or battery-operated toys.

Monetary donations can also be made at https://www.gofundme.com/roma-toy-library.

If you can help with any of the above, we would be so grateful! Please contact Nat Cooksley on 0448177797 or on the Roma Toy Library Facebook page.
