Three community groups from across the Shoalhaven have received grants from the Veolia Mulwaree Trust.

Supported Accommodation Homelessness Services Shoalhaven Illawarra (SAHSSI) received $1864 for new beds and furniture items at its Nowra Women's Refuge.
The Milton Ulladulla Dog Training Club will undertake improvements to its dog training agility area and received $6510 to assist with works.
Shoalhaven Football Association president Ian Cockburn said he felt great about the grant.
Mr Cockburn said the club planned to refurbish the old building and remove the shipping containers currently used for storage.
"It's terrific," he said.
"If we can use the old building instead of the shipping containers that would be great."
