At bcu, supporting local communities within our regions is something we’re passionate about. We know that when organisations work together, groups and our communities will flourish.


In September 2020, we celebrated our 50 year anniversary. We are extremely proud of this achievement, and appreciate that without the ongoing support from our Members and communities it would not have been possible.

To celebrate this milestone and offer support to our local communities, we introduced the Bill Ussher Community Grants which will award a total of $50,000 to local community groups or not-for-profit organisations.

We asked our bcu Members to nominate deserving NSW and QLD community groups to receive a Community Grant.

Thank you to all of our Members who have voted, the results of our Bill Ussher Community Grants are now in!
