move and upgrade kitchen for community programs

How will the funding be spent?

Currently we are raising money to pay for all the kitchen cupboards. Once these are installed the stainless steel bench tops will be added, and White Goods (as described above)

How will the project be delivered?

The project is part of a broader plan to create a space for more community programs and help for the disadvantaged. The project will be delivered by volunteer staff at the facility. People with specific skills will assist with training and coaching. If funded items provided would be installed by trades-people where required.

How many people will directly benefit from this project?

50 or more - it is expected this number would grow

How will you measure the impact of this project?

The project will be measured by direct feedback from those (being helped) who are engaged in the community programs. We would also carry out monthly totals of the numbers of people involved.

How will the project fit this year's theme of ‘Connect, Grow, Build, Belong’?

The project will help to engage people who need specific assistance and help with life skills - especially with young mums who are single. It will also provide a place of training/instruction for simple and healthy cooking. This will help connect people who are in similar place of need, bringing much needed encouragement. It will grow people in a number of life skills including doing better with their finances. It will build a community hub and provide a place of belonging and a space to meet.

Coast and Vines Church Inc.

What does this organisation do?

Our organisation is a church in our local community here in Willunga, S.A. - we provide a place of friendship, connection and help for people within our community and beyond (we support schooling in Uganda).

Specifically:
- we provide a connection/support group for young mums in our region. The group is know as "Little Grapes" which reflects the wine grape growing region we live in
- we have groups for youth and young adults. These groups are place of friendship, acceptance, and encouragement. We conduct these groups with a range of activities designed to give young people self worth, confidence and a range of life skills. As part of our church movement (A2A www.a2a.org) in this coming year we will be offering a coaching course for young leaders.
- we have done in the past and intend to continue into the future the CAP (Christians Against Poverty) money course. This is a simple but brilliant budgeting program for people who are doping it tough. We have run three seperate courses so far.
- our facility is used by community and government groups and entities as a meeting place
- we are a place of counselling referal and provide counselling ourselves
- we provide direct support to families suffering through grief, loss or sickness
