A further 115 organisations across the sport and active recreation sector are set to benefit from the 2021-22 Change Our Game Community Activation Grants Program.
The program offers grants of up to $10,000 for initiatives that increase membership, improve culture and build a safe and welcoming environment for women and girls through community sport.
Successful recipient, Badminton Geelong will use its grant to engage with recent migrants in the community to foster new social connections and boost female participation.
The program highlights the Victorian Government’s ongoing commitment to gender equality in community sport and since being established in 2018 more than 350 grants have been provided to hold events like come-and-try days to community forums and educational sessions.
The grants are part of the Government’s $18.8 million investment in the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation and the Change Our Game initiative.
The Office is also improving participation in sport and active recreation for women and girls, empowering women to take on leadership positions and supporting clubs to gain relevant skills and knowledge of gender equality practices.
