Cancer Council offers funding
COMMUNITY organisations will have the opportunity to receive funding of up to $3000 with applications now open to the Cancer Council of NSW's Cancer Control grants.
According to Vanessa Crossley from the Cancer Council's Mid North Coast office, there are many local needs that can't be identified from a State perspective.
"They are better identified and met by local people working together for cancer control," Ms Crossley said.
She said applications are invited from organisations that are a community, not for profit, agency and can demonstrate that the organisation can administer funds.
Some examples of programs suitable would be cancer information displays for local communities, equipment for community use, shade structures, educational programs, training programs, and hire of transport or equipment.
Applications for funding will be assessed by a local committee comprising representatives from the Cancer Council NSW, and other cancer control organisations. For further information and an application kit contact Vanessa Crossley on 6651 5732.
