Congratulations to Southern Cross Kids’ Camp on receiving the January Noel Jones CSP grant. Southern Cross Kids’ Camp is an Australian Registered Charity that aims to interrupt the cycle of abuse and neglect in primary aged children by providing an outstanding five day camping program. Many of the kids who attend the camp are in the foster care system and have been subjected to various forms of significant trauma. However, with over 700 dedicated volunteers, kids who attend a Southern Cross Kids’ Camp experience a week filled with fun and laughter and get to leave camp with a fresh perspective, new life skills and hope for a brighter future, providing a week of happy memories for the kids who need it most.
Noel Jones Community Support Program
The Noel Jones Community Support Program supports three main groups in our communities:
• Charity Groups and Events
• Junior Sports Stars and Clubs
• Schools and Kinders
Each month one grant of $1000 is awarded with each monthly recipient going into the draw for a further yearly grant of $5000.
A percentage of each sale made through the Noel Jones network is apportioned to Noel Jones CSP to support our local communities.
How to apply for a grant
If your organisation or event falls within our support categories you may apply for a Noel Jones CSP grant. Applicants can apply once per financial quarter, (and will need to reapply each quarter to be reconsidered for the next round of grants) with nominations being judged on the following criteria:
– Groups and organisations that aim to support and strengthen our local communities
– Groups and organisations that are in close proximity to the Noel Jones network
– Groups and organisations that provide opportunities for Noel Jones staff to participate and volunteer
