The Rural City of Wangaratta Community Grants Program supports community groups and organisations to carry out programs and projects that will develop and enhance the social, cultural and environmental experience of local residents.
The Inclusion and Diversity Workshop for Wangaratta sporting clubs is an opportunity for clubs to gain a better understanding of how to become a more inclusive club.
The workshop will be facilitated by the founder of ‘Advancing Women’, Michelle Redfern, who is a passionate advisor who is determined to contribute to achieving global gender equality in her life time, with particular emphasis on the sporting sector. Michelle currently holds board roles with Williamstown VFL Football Club and Good Shepherd Microfinance.
The latest round of VicHealth's Active Club Grants are now open. The grants have a focus on women’s sport and making getting active fun and accessible for all. VicHealth will be funding programs for women and girls and social or modified sport programs.
We currently have a part-time vacancy for the role of Project Coordinator. As a Sport North East Project Coordinator, you will have a direct impact on improving clubs capacity to become more welcoming and inclusive, especially for women and under-represented groups.
Planning has begun for the spring school holiday program (between Monday 24 September and Friday 5th October).
If you have suggestions for sports you would like to try, or if your club would like to hold a session with us, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us on (03) 5721 0200 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
