Local students have been given the opportunity to take part in an interactive disability awareness program, thanks to the City of Bayswater’s Better Bayswater grant.
Rebound WA were awarded $3,200 through the March 2019 grants round to put towards their Wheel Life program, educating high school students about the importance of accessibility and giving them the chance to try out wheelchair basketball.
City of Bayswater CEO Andrew Brien said the Better Bayswater grant aims to make it easier for local community and non-for-profit groups to get great ideas off the ground.
“We’re proud to be able to create an avenue for the many outstanding local groups operating in our City to expand on the important work they do.
“This year, we’ve awarded funding to Orana House’s women’s therapy program, Rebound WA’s accessibility education program, Future Bayswater’s grower’s market and Ellis House Community Arts Centre’s artwork display. With up to $5,000 per application available to projects that align with our Strategic Community Plan, there are endless possibilities.
“The next round of grants is opening on Monday 23 September. If you’ve got an idea that you think can make a positive difference in our City I strongly encourage you to apply.”
