Great Ideas Nutted OUT!

Our local community is full of people with great ideas, interesting projects, and the very best intentions to invest themselves in a better future, for us all.
Make a Change Australia has been supporting us to make stuff happen for 6 months, recently hosting Let’s Nut It Out to include people from Romsey, Lancefield and Cobaw regions.
'Nutting it out’ is taking focused time to work out what’s needed, married with the support of local experts who can help us through the 'road blocks’.
People attended with all sorts of projects; a story telling project to address mental health issues, a literacy program for young people in justice systems, an arts register so that aged-care centres can find creative people, a community owned emergency plan and a plan to engage young people in history projects.

Expand Your impact - the next event on the schedule - is the last chance to get this free support, training and inspiration to move your projects forward. It offers free professional, community and personal development for people who want to make stuff happen for themselves, their communities, or at work.

The day will focus on building your skills in:
Project Planning, Engagement, Effective Teams and Money Matters
Register NOW  for this rewarding day for people who want to make things happen, Saturday the 13th of August.

EXPAND YOUR IMPACT, Saturday 13 August
Lancefield Guesthouse, 71 Main Rd, Lancefield



Read about some of the exciting projects developing in your local community.


"Attending today affirmed the value of my project idea.”

Chris Hyett is developing a story-telling project to address mental health issues.

“The next step for me, is to make contact with people and get them on board”

Dawn Banforth is a singer, and works in aged-care. Her initiative is an artist directory—to connect aged-care to artists.

“I wanted to think about engaging community and letting them know that we are more than a library,” says Sara Bryant of the Romsey Library.

“I am investigating business models—to provide young people who are in the justice systems access to opportunities to receive literacy support.” Jackie Nieuwenhuizen is an entrepreneur and a reading specialist.
