We're working in your community

The LUCRF Super Community Program is a unique initiative we developed in 2010. We partner with outstanding local organisations in the communities where you live and work to make a difference where it matters most.

The LUCRF Super Community Program was started in 2010 and has grown to involve 36 partners across 44 projects, with over 120,000 people who have benefited. And we’re not stopping any time soon. 

We support our partner organisations so they can deliver projects addressing the needs of communities in one of four focus areas.

We address issues of food access and homelessness. Our current projects include the Outreach Program, addressing the needs of women facing homelessness and often domestic violence. The program provides assistance to women and children as they transition from crisis to long-term housing. 

The Community Food Program delivers an average of 220 meals per day. For many, the community meal is their only hot meal for the day.

We focus on programs that can encourage communities connecting and integrating while supporting culture and heritage. Our current projects are outlined below.

The Soccer for All project is an initiative to get young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds involved in sport, an activity that holds a powerful place in Australian culture.

Maintaining a person’s cultural, ethnic and faith identity is known to be a strong, positive factor for settlement. The Karen Community Hub has been established to hold classes for young people to learn the Karen language as well as other cultural traditions such as music, dancing and weaving.

Developing life skills can contribute to employment and further learning and is vital for many Australians. We support projects that develop these skills as summarised below.

Lack of services and job prospects often coupled with problems at school or home can leave teenagers feeling isolated and despondent. The ARVOs Program is a weekly after-school program for disadvantaged youth.

From time to time many people find themselves struggling to buy food and pay the rent or mortgage while juggling numerous debts. The Financial Counselling Program will help people in financial stress and hardship.

We focus on projects that can address accessibility to services that help with addiction, obesity and peer support.

While we have no active projects in this focus area, a recent project was with Women’s Health Victoria to help women living in regional and rural areas who otherwise miss out on vital patient-support services. 

Our Community Program has been running for 10 years

All applications for grants are currently by invitation only, selected by the Community Program’s Board of Directors. We ultimately aim to support organisations which would not otherwise receive funding from traditional sources.
 

How can I contribute?

Every little bit counts. Any donation you can give makes a big difference to the lives of the most vulnerable people in our communities. Because we’re a charity, donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
