June 2022 | Runs on the board for BIEDO, what does the rest of the year bring.

BIEDO has been right across the Burnett Inland over the past month. You might have seen us at the South Burnett Flood Recovery sessions, North Burnett Ag Shows or the JT Academy Tour supporting local Mental Health Initiatives.


I'm pleased to announce that BIEDO will be a proud signatory of the Small Business Friendly Charter. The charter's aim is to reduce barriers between large organisations and small businesses and to enhance the operating environment for small business. By signing this charter we pledge to fulfil the commitments set out in the charter. Small business deserves this focus, and we look forward to supporting it.

BIEDO has also had its fair share of challenges over the past few months.


As we continue to progress through the year, BIEDO will be working closer than ever before at a community level to create opportunity and assist with practical solutions, to meet identified gaps in services/skills and to drive proactive and positive change.

The future of us working together starts with the first conversation, and we are importantly having those conversations now so that we can set the plan forward from here.
