AYBM Named 2023 Qantas Regional Grants Recipient

Darling Downs initiative, Are You Bogged Mate?, is proud to be named one of the thirty-two community groups from around Australia will receive a share of $2 million as Qantas boosts its commitment to regional Australia.

The Qantas Regional Grants program is providing $10 million in grants over five years – $2 million each year – to support not-for-profit groups and projects directly benefitting regional Australia.

Grant winners were selected from a record 1600 applications from every state and territory, almost 40 per cent more than when the program first launched. Grant recipients will receive a combination of flights, cash and marketing support.

The grant will assist Are You Bogged Mate? to develop a retreat intervention program for rural men recovering from mental health challenges as part of the Bogged Brakes initiative.

AYBM? Founder, Mary O'Brien appeared on 7NEWS Toowoomba to discuss the program.
