Sponsoring an Activity in the Community
A guide for sponsors
How it works
Activity in the Community projects provide clients with opportunities to participate more fully in the lives of their communities. Activity in the Community aims to help clients develop and maintain motivation, confidence, skills and self-esteem.
At Work and Income we can help introduce you to the right people for the project – and continue to provide support and advice.
Our clients may have a personal plan with us. This plan may include activities that will assist them to meet their individual goals. Your project may be included as part of the plan.
The Activity in the Community project should:
- Benefit the community and/or the environment.
- Benefit people by developing or maintaining their self-esteem, confidence, motivation, work disciplines and dignity.
- Not result in the private benefit of sponsor organisations, in terms of profit or competitive advantage.
- Not result in the substitution and/or displacement of current or future paid workers.
Any organisations that benefit from an Activity in the Community must contribute to the project by meeting the overhead costs.
We review projects available from sponsors. If your project is accepted, suitable applicants will be referred to you for consideration. You can decide who you want to take on.
