Cancer Australia invites applications for the fourth round of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Well Women Workshops Grant Initiative. Community groups, organisations and health workers who work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women are invited to apply.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Well Women Workshops Grant Initiative provides an opportunity to health organisations and individual health professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women to promote and encourage breast awareness and the early detection of breast cancer through locally-run workshops. These workshops will help participants to understand the importance of early detection, the role of mammographic screening and how to identify breast cancer symptoms.

The total available funding is $32,500.00 (Ex. GST). Applicants from metropolitan communities can apply for grant funding of up to $2,500 (Ex. GST) and applicants from rural, remote and regional communities can apply for grant funding of up to $4,000 (Ex. GST). Grant funding can be used to run more than one workshop. To see which category you fall under please see the Grant Guidelines.

Grant recipients will be provided with the Community Education Resource pack. This comprehensive resource pack includes advice for the Well Women Workshop organiser, presenter notes, resources to organise and run the workshop, and promotional materials.

The call for applications will close on 4 April 2014, and successful grant recipients will be announced by 30 April 2014.
