Supporting our Locals

As a community-based club, Laurieton United Services Club provides assistance in the form of cash donations, community grants, and provision of a free venue for meetings to all local service organisations such as Rotary, Lions and Probus as well as locally-based charitable organisations such as Red Cross, Riding for the Disabled, Meals on Wheels and Torchbearers for Legacy. The club also supports 22 affiliated sub-clubs including Lawn Bowls, Fishing Club, Travel Club, Bridge Club and Women’s and Men’s Golf Clubs.

Laurieton United Services Club are very proud supporters of our local sporting teams and community groups and contribute where we can including over $90,000 in funding and donations to support over 80 community groups.

Commencing in August 2016, the Club also supports Camden Haven Community @ 3, a movement that was formed out of a need to address the concerns of homelessness and loneliness in the area providing an opportunity for them to connect and re-connect with our community.

Every year the Club shows their appreciation and support for the local community by hosting the annual Australia Day and New Year’s Eve celebrations as well as hosting a Kids Christmas Party for our member’s children and grandchildren with games, rides, face painting, lolly bags and a special visit from Santa Clause to thank our members and provide a little something special for their families.

Laurieton United Services Club has been a huge part of Slice of Haven from the onset. Hosted on the club’s doorstep and with Robert Dwyer, Secretary Manager, one of the event visionaries at the helm; Slice of Haven has become an important addition to the event calendar of the NSW Mid North Coast and an event we are excited and proud to be part of each year with over 70 stallholders and 16,500 people tasting their “slice” of Haven.

ClubGRANTS is one of Australia’s largest grant programs, providing more than $1000 million in cash each year to a variety of worthy causes across NSW. Last year the Port Macquarie-Hastings Local ClubGRANTS Committee contributed over $358,000 to our local region through this grant process.

ClubGRANTS is designed to support the provision of front-line services that support the disadvantaged in the community, so they are in a better position to benefit from financial contributions. The local Clubs in the region who are eligible, contribute funds from their Category 1 allocations to this grant process.

ClubGRANTS Category 1 provides for expenditure on specific community welfare and social services; community development projects; community health services and employment assistance activities.

Projects or services that are eligible for funding should be targeted at supporting the welfare and broader social fabric of the local community; and aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people.

The Port Macquarie-Hastings Local ClubGRANTS Committee is encouraging all community organisations and groups dedicated to the welfare of our local community to apply.
