How will the funding be spent?

Funding will be spent on activities that involve children/teenagers and Elders, learning about traditional cultural activities, included in that would be cooking, artefact making, fitness and health wellbeing sessions. The program would be formed around Community need by sending out a questionnaire to ask what the Community would like to see and how they would like to be involved. At the end of the program it would include a Cultural camp.

How will the project be delivered?

A Program Manager would be accountable for the project delivery and outcomes. They will source Community Members to attend the Program and find out the needs of the Community, from this they will then source the correct Facilitator to run the program.
