SunSmart Shade Creation Initiative


Cancer Council Queensland and the Queensland Department of Health ran the 2018 SunSmart Shade Creation Initiative. The Initiative provided 50 per cent matched funding up to $2000 for portable shade and up to $5000 for permanent shade for not-for-profit organisations that cater to children 0-18 years. All eligible not-for-profit organisations, for example schools, sporting clubs, childcare centres and community groups, were encouraged to apply.
