Member or Kiama Gareth Ward MP has today announced that local organisations across our region with projects that empower women and promote their wellbeing can now apply for a share in the New South Wales Government’s Investing in Women funding program.
Mr Ward has invited organisations across our region to put their hand up for funding, with applications open until Friday 23rd April 2021.
“This grants program will enable projects that will encourage innovation and lead to increased productivity and prosperity for the region,” he said.
“We are building a safer, stronger NSW and this program will mean that women will have greater access to programs designed to improve their financial, physical and mental wellbeing,” Mr Ward said.
The NSW Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor MLC said that the initiatives funded under the program would support women in a range of objectives from employment and training to leadership development.
“From finding ways to improve women’s financial wellbeing and security to promoting health and mental fitness for all ages, we are looking for projects that can really make a difference to people’s lives,” she said.
Past projects include a ‘cook and connect’ program for young and mature women who are experiencing homelessness, a project to help more women work in regional and communities and a coffee cart which provides valuable skills to Aboriginal women.
“These are just a few examples of projects which have helped change women’s lives and shape a better future,” Minister Taylor said.
