|Many QRC member companies contribute to local communities, offering financial and in-kind support to community development projects in the rural and regional communities in which they operate. |
The provision and allocation of such support is at the discretion of individual companies and often specific sites, and therefore the projects supported vary considerably across the industry.
Examples of this involvement are available on websites of individual companies, and often reported as community development or partnership initiatives.
|Resource sector companies support a broad array of projects, such as: |
|offering a range of scholarships and training opportunities|
providing additional resources for local schools|
supporting training and development in a range of professional and community roles|

|Support funding from resource companies |
|QRC is a not-for-profit industry body, and does not provide funding or support for community projects or other organisations.|
QRC does not influence the allocation of any community funding offered by individual companies and is not a position to promote individual bodies or organisations seeking funding/support from resources companies to our members.
QRC recommends any organisation seeking industry funding or support contact the individual company. These companies are listed on QRCís website.
However, depending on the nature of the request, QRC may be able to circulate information, including relevant contact details, for our member companies to consider and follow up with the organisation at their discretion.
