Community programs given New Year’s boost

Back

Local community groups throughout Australia have received a bright start to 2015 after being granted funding as part of our sixth annual Community Grants Program.

The 14 charities will share in $350,000 worth of funding that will support a range of grassroots health programs aimed at young people and carers across the country.        

We've partnered with organisations that deliver practical approaches to meeting the unique health and wellbeing needs of these groups.

We believe healthy communities are the key to improving the lives of Australians now and for future generations, which is why we focus our support on initiatives that deliver real health outcomes for local communities.

Whether it is through expanding current services or introducing new programs that help reduce the gaps in existing services each of these funded projects give young people and carers the opportunity to live healthy, happy lives.

Individual program funding ranged from between $2,000 to $50,000. Find out more about our 2014 beneficiaries and their programs here.
