Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours awarded Australia Post Community Grant
WELCOMING Intercultural Neighbours has been awarded a grant of $2,000 as part of Australia Post’s 2020 Community Grants Program for their work in Rockhampton.
This grant will fund their project ‘Promoting Cultural and Linguistically Diverse Migrant Women’s Resilience’.
The project provides art workshops to migrant women in the Rockhampton region with a focus on strengthening per-support and promoting resilience.
Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours is one of 79 community organisations across the country to receive a 2020 Australia Post Community Grant of up to $10,000.
This year’s grants program aligns with Australia Post’s commitment to supporting mental health, funding projects that help improve connection and mental wellbeing in local communities.
Australia Post Executive General Manager Nicole Sheffield said she was proud to be awarding these funds during what has been an incredibly challenging year for communities across Australia.
“We know when we connect, we feel better,” Ms Sheffield said.
More than $500,000 in total will be awarded to not-for-profit community organisations across Australia, with the majority of recipients in rural and regional areas.
