Cancer programs backed with funds

THE idea that local people know what local people need is a notion well recognised by the Cancer Council NSW.

Community groups on the Mid North Coast are invited to apply for grants to educate, promote and support cancer programs in their area.

Submissions for the Cancer Control Local Grant Program, which provides funding from $500 to $3000, are being accepted through to October 14.

Regional manager of the Cancer Council's Mid North Coast office Patty Delaney said community groups and organisations could identify their own needs for cancer control which were not generally identified and met from a statewide perspective.

"Local people are in the best position to understand ways of meeting these needs and the Cancer Council NSW will provide grants to help communities work together to develop solutions to these issues," Ms Delaney said.

The project should fall into one of the following categories: research, patient support and information, cancer prevention and screening, advocacy and working in the community.

To get an application form, contact Patty Delaney on 66 598 405 or 0408 966 938.
