Mid Murray Family Connections (MMFC)
Mid Murray Council
Work alongside a range of Council leaders and community, State and Federal organisations to deliver and awareness campaign which grows interest and advocacy for the MMFC program.
This campaign has been a passion project for our team. The MMFC works to improve the wellbeing of developmentally vulnerable children living in the Mid Murray Council district. Data from 2014 showed that local kids in this area were some of the most ‘at-risk’ in Australia – and so a key part of our work was to build intrigue and interest in this with key funding bodies and political leaders who can help support change and resources in this space. We’ve delivered significant work in this space over the past 3 years, including significant media coverage (more than 35 new items in local, State and national media) culminating in a recent 3+ page spread in The Advertiser (including the front page and editorial section, see attached). We’ve also helped write awards and grant submissions for the program – all which have helped the program win national recognition for its work in the realm of collective impact, and harness government and philanthropic funding. The program has now become so well known that its program director was invited to speak at the national forum for collective impact in 2018 – a major coup for the project and the Council. We’re continuing to support the council in the space of community wellbeing and have recently written a project submission and advocacy documentary for them as part of the Fay Fuller Foundation. This work has helped place Mid Murray in the top 10 submissions in the State, and they are now in the running to win funding of approximately $1million over three years.
We are absolutely stoked with the application… well done. It reads perfectly
