Insurance COVID-19 Community Support Fund

We're pleased to announce that a second round of funding has been granted. We have selected 44 additional community groups from our original pool of applicants, to share in an additional $100,000 of grants, bringing the total amount awarded to $200,000 spread over 85 organisations. 

The second round of funding came about following the overwhelming number of applications we initially received. It was clear that many of our local community groups were struggling from the impact of the pandemic.
