Advice to help Noosa's 300 not-for-profits survive COVID-19


Council has launched a series of fortnightly webinars to help Noosa's 300-plus community organisations survive the pandemic.

The COVID and Recovery webinars, which start May 5, will provide not-for-profit organisations with advice on issues they may be facing in the wake of the pandemic.

"Managing your community organisation though any crisis can seem like an impossible task, particularly when you are already stressed by the personal effects of disaster," Council's Community Development Manager Alison Hamblin said.

"Most organisations will have already gone through the shutdown phase but there's still work to be done, even if activities aren't taking place.

"In this series of 60-minute webinars, we will be discussing the issues and offering solutions based on years of experience and the most up-to-date information available."

The webinars will cover:

·         Communicating with members the impacts of government restrictions.

·         Meeting legal and financial obligations while not operating.

·         Dealing with creditors and pandemic-related refund requests.

·         Bouncing back after the pandemic.

·         Where and how to seek recovery funding.

Respected and experienced not-for-profit advisor Leisa Donlan will present five webinars.

"Leisa has presented to quite a few of our not-for-profits in the past. She is well received and has a lot of experience with our not-for-profit organisations," Ms Hamblin said.

"Not-for-profit organisations in Noosa are an important part of the fabric of our community and they contribute greatly to our way of life.

"Council is pleased to present this series to support them through this difficult time and I'd encourage all of our not-for-profit organisations to take part."

The webinars will be hosted online via Zoom. To register, visit  or call (07) 5329 6458.
