Council Connections - 4 November 2022

4th November 2022

TradeMutt Shirts, Letters of Support, Morning Melodies, November Mega Movie Weekend and Council's Events Calendar Page

Introduction of TradeMutt Shirts

On Wednesday 26 October 2022 in celebration of Wellbeing Wednesday, a number of Council staff walked along Lannercost Street to create awareness and spark conversations around mental health and wellbeing.

Wellbeing Wednesday was a day for Council staff and community partners to come together to connect and raise community awareness. 

There was no better way to raise awareness than through partnering with Trade Mutt, selectability, the Hinchinbrook Community Support Centre, Queensland Police Service, Queensland Ambulance Service, Standby Uniting Care, Brighter Super, and the Wholebeing Initiative.

With the assistance of funding provided under the Queensland Health Localised Mental Health Grant Initiative, Council have introduced the colourful TradeMutt shirts into the Uniform Policy.

TIACS is the name of the not-for-profit mental health support service funded by TradeMutt.

TIACS is a text and call service providing access to mental health clinicians in a free and easy to use way, helping to remove the physical and financial barriers that prevent so many Australians from reaching out for help when they need it.

For further information or to reach out, please contact the TIACS team on 0488 846 988 or visit their website at www.tiacs.org/.

Letters of Support

Council is committed to supporting the community and local organisations to attract funding for projects that align with Council’s strategic goals, priorities, values and Corporate Plan, and understand that providing support for programs, projects and events can strengthen grant applications, and can be critical for organisations seeking to secure funding.

When supplying a Letter of Support, Council is providing ‘in principle’ support. This means Council is in favour of the concept, based on the information provided. The principle/idea seems good, and Council agrees with the outcome of community benefit sought.

The Mayor, as Council’s official spokesperson, is authorised to provide Letters of Support for ‘in principle’ support for funding applications.

Although a letter of support from Council can add weight to an applicants’ grant submission, it should be noted that provision of a Letter of Support does not automatically result in Council playing a role in the project, nor does it constitute automatic Council approval for the project.

Requests can be submitted by completing a Letter of Support Request Form, available on Council’s website, providing a template letter, or providing the relevant information in writing as early as possible to council@hinchinbrook.qld.gov.au to allow for research, evaluation and preparation of a Letter of Support prior to grant deadlines.

For more information, visit Council’s website, Letters of Support page or contact Council.
