The Peet Community Partnership Program offers up to $3,000 to help Flagstone schools, clubs and not-for profit groups launch new projects, or kick start existing ones.

About $17,000 has been awarded to seven groups for projects in sport, arts, education, health and recreation.

“Local clubs and volunteer associations are already making a big contribution to the growing community at Flagstone and Peet wants to help them expand and grow,” said Peet Limited Managing Director and CEO Brendan Gore.

“They are a great way for neighbours to meet and form enduring social connections – part of the glue which helps bind communities together.

“Peet builds award-winning developments across Australia. We recognise that building sustainable communities is as much about encouraging the health and wellbeing of residents as it is about good planning and infrastructure.

“Even small, well targeted investments can deliver lasting benefit.”

​Applications for the next round of Peet Community Partnerships grants at Flagstone open in July.
