Central to our vision of making a positive and lasting impact on nationwide health issues is the support we provide to innovative not for profit organisations to help them develop new approaches to tackling our big health challenges. That's why we are excited to announce our new Multi-Year Partnerships, which will play a significant role in supporting the health and wellbeing of communities right across Australia.
Over the next two to three years we will support four new charities, providing a total of $1.2 million in funding.
Australian Drug Foundation's Good Sports Junior Program will provide a unique approach to assist sporting clubs with junior teams to become stronger, healthier and more family friendly by establishing strong alcohol management, healthy food supply and tobacco management policies and practices.
Similarly, Hello Sunday Morning will develop two smartphone apps to help 18-30 year olds to change the way they consume alcohol. An innovative model of behaviour change, this program will enable young people to improve their quality of life and contributing to the effort to create a better drinking culture in Australia.
Our partnership with Disability Sport and Recreation in Victoria will support the development of the new online portal Score! that connects young Victorians with a disability to inclusive sport and recreation activities which meet their ambitions and abilities.
While the National Stroke Foundation's successful My Stroke Journey program will be rolled out widely across NSW providing stroke survivors and carers with the information, resources and support they need at key points during their recovery from stroke.
