Frequently asked questions

What is the project?

The BCR Toolkit: Tourism Business Resilience in Midwest Victoria program is a tailored version of Resilient Ready’s innovative Business Community Resilience (BCR) Toolkit. The BCR Toolkit program builds regional connections and helps businesses to make small changes that have a big impact.

Running from April to June 2024, the BCR Toolkit program will support TMV Industry Partners, primarily micro and small businesses, to build their resilience through 10 resilience-themed micro-learning modules. All modules focus on a locally-relevant topic and take 5-10 minutes to complete. Modules include two simple yes/no questions, a local business case study and easy-to-understand worksheets and tools.

Target program outcomes include:

  • Safer tourists and tourism operators
  • Increased resilience skills and knowledge across the business community
  • Positive behaviour changes resulting in better business
