About the Project

A Social Return on Investment (SROI) study, conducted by West Gippsland CMA, showed that for every one dollar granted to the group there is at least $3.41 return in social value.

When the project was completed, Merriman Creek Landcare Group members were asked about the social changes experienced as part of the project. These changes included:

• making a positive impact to the community
• feeling more connected to neighbours
• improved NRM skills and knowledge
• improved emotional wellbeing
