Are you eligible for a sponsored (free) position?

Through the generous support of Resilience Canopy Partners, we offer sponsored training placements to people committed to applying the training with a community within sponsored Local Government Areas (LGA). That means the training and access to the subsequent 24 months of mentoring and coaching through the Canopy Collective is free!


This includes individuals or groups from community organisations, not for profit or government organisations in the identified LGAs. 

If your community is in one of these identified areas, and you are committed to using the six-step model to walk alongside your community on their resilience building journey – then this sponsorship opportunity is for you!


You can apply for a sponsored place during the first step registration process, and we will be in touch to confirm your eligibility.  Spaces are limited for each LGA so be quick to apply.

We may also be able to assist in finding a partner to support your training costs, even if your community is not within an existing sponsored LGA.  CONTACT US so we can help you.

We are also seeking organisations and local governments to host the training. All hosts within sponsored LGAs will receive two sponsored course positions. Email us.
