Four organisations in City of Swan receive financial boost through community grants program

FOUR organisations in the City of Swan have received a financial boost to help bring their community projects to life.

Girls Without Limits, the RSPCA, Conservation Volunteers Australia and Blackadder/Woodbridge Catchment Group were collectively awarded more than $80,000 as part of the City’s 2017-18 proactive community grants program.

Swan Mayor David Lucas said the recipients all had invaluable ideas that could now become a reality.

“Many organisations in our community, both big and small, rely on grant funding to get their projects, activities and initiatives off the ground,” he said.

“We are delighted to be able to support these local community groups because it’s their fantastic initiatives that help enrich our community.

“The successful applicants have varied and diverse ideas, which involve providing support services for young women in Ellenbrook, assisting local pet owners and undertaking conservation efforts.”
