Aurora Energy has today announced the recipients of its second round of community grants for 2020, designed to help Tasmanian community groups stay connected as they adapt to the new normal due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The successful applicants were KIDS Foundation, Launceston City Mission, Cancer Patients Foundation – Look Good Feel Better, Karadi Aboriginal Corporation and Missing School Inc.

The grants will support the organisations with projects of up to $10,000 that will help build social connection, drive inclusion and engage communities impacted by social isolation.

Aurora CEO Rebecca Kardos congratulated each of the recipients who are working hard to rebuild a stronger Tasmania gradually and responsibly.

“We’ve all been tested in different ways this year but what I love about Tasmanians is how resilient and united we are during the tough times,” Mrs Kardos said.

“As a proud Tasmanian organisation supporting Tasmanians, we are pleased that we can lend a helping hand during these challenging times because it’s our community too.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with these organisations from across our state to provide them with the opportunity to reconnect with members of their communities in a safe environment.”

All activities will comply with current social distancing restrictions as indicated by the Tasmanian Government’s Roadmap to Recovery.
