Revitalisation Grant In Action

Cindi Shaw from to GET has already put in an expression of interest. The idea behind her business is to help put local retailers in touch with consumers through a one-stop online channel. She recently won a prestigious UNSW Founders First Wave startup prize.

"We're interested in applying for a Revitalisation Grant because we provide access to services that our community needs, especially busy working families and elderly residents," she says.

"We aim to make it easier for you to support the local businesses you know and love by providing an easy way for you to order and access their unique products and services online."

Speaking at Pasta Pantry in Rose Bay, one of the first businesses to join to GET, Mayor Susan Wynne said she was excited to open the grants program to applicants like Cindi.

"The last year has been a difficult time for many of us, but with public health restrictions beginning to ease I’m overjoyed to launch our Revitalisation Grants Program. If you are a small business, community group or even an individual, we can’t wait to hear all your ideas on how to improve post-lockdown life in Woollahra."
