Hallett Community Hub and Navigating Life workshop series have both shared in the 2019 EnergyAustralia Hallett Community Grants.

The long-awaited opening of the new Hallett Community Hub will provide a growing community with a family friendly space for regular family nights, playgroup, community events and mental health support as well as informal get-togethers that will help newcomers get to better know their neighbours.

Whilst the project, supported by the Hallett Community and Sports Association, has been lucky enough to receive support to repurpose the old Bowling Club, the EnergyAustralia grant will fund a hot water system and a free-standing oven to provide catering options for events.

In Peterborough the "Navigating Life" Workshop Series will be delivered in joint partnership by Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North, Peterborough Youth Action Committee and Uniting Country SA.

Peterborough Community Development Officer Hayley Trott said the workshop series would enable Peterborough's young adults to be better participants in the community, more employable and more confident in actively participating in life.

"The EnergyAustralia Community Grant will allow us to purchase the equipment that is required for the class and then included in the take home packages," Ms Trott said.
