Advocacy Partnerships and Funding Partnerships

SDIEA is dedicated to making a real difference to the lives of people on the southern downs and creating real opportunity to be part of the community.

Becoming an advocacy partner means speaking with to local government and industry for policy and legislation change, improved accessibility to alternative skills and education training, and seeking funding for education and skills training for Southern Downs community members.
