Building Capacity and Skills of Rural Businesses and Not For Profits
“It was terrific to take part in the Business Smash workshop with the 150Square team. The SMASH methodology gave me an insight into my business and with 150’s help provided an excellent planning tool that I have put into practice. It has really made me realise how we go along running our businesses but rarely sit down and develop a strategy to take it to the next level”.

Community Sport in the Wheatbelt

During 2019 and 2020 the Department of Local Government, Sport and Culture together with the WAFC, WACFL, Netball WA and Hockey WA investigated the common factors of success in winter sports clubs and associations in the Wheatbelt. Specifically, the investigation considered the success factors of sports competitions and governance that led to improved participation on and off the field. This was undertaken by 150Square.

A number of case studies were developed and a workshop will be held on Saturday 6 March 2021 at the Narembeen Recreation Centre for all Winter sports clubs and associations in the eastern Wheatbelt. A summary of the work and case studies is made available below.
