Veterans Health Week grants

Community groups and organisations are encouraged to apply for grants supporting events during Veterans Health Week in October.

Applications for the grants opened late last month and close on July 31.

Veterans Health Week will run from October 21 to 29 October with a theme of physical activity.

Forrest MHR Nola Marino said ex-service organisations and community groups with a link to the veteran community in Forrest can apply for funding to support a relevant physical activity theme.

“Regular exercise is important for our health and wellbeing and it’s also an effective way to connect with people in the community and make new friends,” Mrs Marino said.
