Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander well women workshop grants

 

Overview

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander well women workshop grants initiative provides an opportunity to health organisations and individual health professionals working with Indigenous women to promote and encourage breast awareness and early detection of breast cancer through providing funding to run local workshops.

These workshops will help participants to understand the importance of early detection, the role of mammographic screening and how to identify breast cancer symptoms.

Community groups, organisations and health workers who work with Indigenous women are invited to apply. The total available funding is $32,500. Applicants from metropolitan communities can apply for grant funding of up to $2,500, and applicants from rural, remote and regional communities can apply for grant funding of up to $4,000. Grant funding can be used to run more than one workshop.

Grant recipients will be provided with the community education resource pack, which includes advice for the well women workshop organiser, presenter notes, resources to organise and run the workshop, and promotional materials.

Application details: Applications for this funding opportunity usually close in April, but please refer to the links below for more information.
