A community focused crowd funding initiative by Community Wellbeing Multimedia.
Over the past few years our community has been impacted in many ways through the advent of FIFO work taken on by a significant number of our community members.
Our clubs, volunteer organisations and business in general have felt the affect of this workforce leaving and being away from home. The money they bring into our community helps us all, especially their families, but creates difficulties in relation to these workers ability to contribute to their communities through participation in sporting clubs and volunteer organisations.
Being away from home so often can also impact on the FIFO worker's physical and mental well being. Long hours, distance from family, friends and community can chip away at the best of us until life becomes less rewarding for all involved. We wondered what we could do to help?
