Business and community are Better Together

8 March 2022

Two years on, the South Coast of NSW is still recovering from the destruction caused by the 2020 bushfires. A grant of $250,000 will assist in strengthening the future of the region.

Through your generous donations to the NSW Bushfire Appeal, the grant will help establish the Better Together program. This program will connect and strengthen the business and community sectors. A series of co-designed and community led events, resources, and initiatives will help bring this together.

Recognising that recovery and resilience require business and community to work together. Community Bank Milton and South Coast has engaged Milton Ulladulla Business Chamber and Community Connect Southern Shoalhaven. Together they aim to build local capacity, reinvigorate the community, and empower local action over the next three years.

‘We are delighted to be working with Community Bank Milton and South Coast,' said Matt Dell, President of Milton Ulladulla Business Chamber. 'They have led and driven a project that will help business and community to connect and thrive.'

‘Community Bank Milton and South Coast is part of the Bendigo Bank family. We are in a unique and strong position to support both community and business. Our aim is to achieve great outcomes for our community’, said Justine Cox Chair of Community Bank Milton and South Coast. ‘Better Together is a game changer for this community, and for our Community Bank’, she added.

Better Together has the capacity to become the region's cornerstone. Their goal is to not only aid their recovery, but the entire region's future development.
