Grants help give hope
SOUTH Perth community organisations Leading Youth Forward and Wheels For Hope have been awarded $10,000 each from the Westpac Foundation Community Grants program for their support of the disabled and youth at risk.
Leading Youth Forward aims to enhance the lives of at-risk Perth teenagers in years 8 to 10 by providing mentorships, positive experiences and role models.
Wheels for Hope helps families with disabilities who do not have suitable transport to access medical services, education and community activities by loaning wheelchair accessible vehicles.
Both organisations will also receive additional support which includes a Westpac Foundation Community Grants Ambassador, mentoring, training and networking opportunities.
