Applications for funding for 2022 NSW Women’s Week events are now open, with local councils and not-for-profits encouraged to apply.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said $100,000 is available for local organisations seeking to host community, education, and mentoring opportunities for women and girls between 7 to 13 March, 2022.
“This week is about recognising women from the Dubbo electorate, and celebrating their diverse contributions,” Mr Saunders said.
“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 region.”
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 said.
