Far West Proud
The Far West really is the State’s best kept secret with affordable housing, wide open space and, nature on our doorstep. Our children are catered for with outstanding educational facilities, employment opportunities are abundant and sporting opportunities are endless.
The Far West Proud campaign aims to achieve sustainable economic growth by motivating and encouraging local businesses to grow their workforce, have pride in our communities, establish pathways for our people and encourage participation. The campaign complements the Workforce Development projects that are currently being conducted by Regional Development Australia Far West and will provide promotion and awareness. The campaign incorporates several projects that seek to achieve these aims.
The Far West Gift Card project is an aspect of the Far West Proud campaign that focuses on developing the region’s economy by encouraging local shopping. This project involves the distribution of Far West Gift Cards throughout the community by participating ‘Load Up Businesses’. Consumers elect the amount they wish to load on the gift card, with a minimum of $10 and a maximum $1000. The cards are exclusive to the region and demonstrate a significant amount of diversity as they can be used to redeem goods and services at a wide variety of ‘Redemption Businesses’. There is no cost for businesses to participate in this project and the Far West Proud team encourages local businesses to get in contact if the opportunity is of interest to their business.
