Women and girls across NSW will benefit from a range of community, education and mentoring opportunities during 2022 NSW Women’s Week thanks to a $100,000 grants program from the NSW Government.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Taylor Martin encouraged local councils and not-for-profits to apply for a share of the funding to host events between 7 to 13 March 2022.

“We are looking for events that not only bring women and girls together in a COVID-Safe setting but also provide practical support to help women across the Hunter,” Mr Martin said.

Events should support at least one of the key priorities of the NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-22: improving women’s financial wellbeing and security; encouraging a holistic approach to health and wellbeing or helping women to build confidence and celebrate their achievements.

“Women from all walks of life will be celebrated during NSW Women’s Week including women living in our regional and rural communities, Aboriginal women and women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds,” Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor added.

Previous successful events include a leadership workshop run by the Wagga Aboriginal Women’s Group and a mental health and resilience event hosted by the Altholwood Country Women’s Association.

Organisations can apply for the NSW Women’s Week Grants Program before 15 November 2021 https://womennsw.smartygrants.com.au/WWG22.
