Batemans Bay Area Facilitator Appointed

Hi, I am Jules Klugman, your new local community facilitator for the Investing in Rural Community Future Program (IRCF) . I have lived in the Eurobodalla on and off for the last 15 years, settling back full time in 2018.

My background both professionally and as a volunteer has revolved around supporting NFPs, and has given me the opportunity to meet, work with and support a range of wonderful passionate people, both overseas and in Australia.

I have experience as both a consultant to and a Board member of NFPs, and I am excited about the work and vision of IRCF, and the concern for people and local NFPs in our beautiful area.

The vision of the Investing in Rural Community Futures program, with the financial support of The Snow Foundation, is to deliver stronger organisations for a stronger community.

My role is to support not-for-profits (NFPs) in the Batemans Bay area to connect, build relationships and work together on improving organisation capacity and sustainability.

I am here to help locally governed NFPs to build their capacity, apply for funds, support them to adapt and deliver their capacity building projects, support the evaluation of the program and to ensure that the Batemans Bay Community Roadmap is a living document.  I also aim identify and connect local NFPs to additional services and supports that could help them to operate effectively to deliver on their goals.

Contact me on 0439 767 038 or

My workdays are Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
