FRRR ABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants

1 May 2018

FRRR and our donor partners collaborate with ABC Heywire to help communities take action on the ideas generated by young Australians who attend the annual Heywire Regional Youth Summit.

Heywire engages rural youth in the national conversation, and selected regional youth converged on Canberra in February to meet with His Excellency the Governor-General, MPs including Hon Dr John McVeigh MP and Senator Bridget McKenzie, representatives from government departments, philanthropists, business and community leaders and youth mentors to develop practical solutions to improve the lives of young people.

FRRR first joined forces with the ABC in 2013 and the positive impact of the grants we've awarded so far is being felt in 140 rural and regional communities around Australia. This short video showcases how some of the ideas have been implemented to create real change.
