Waminda House given $2k


Waminda Community House has been awarded a grant of $2000 as part of Australia Post’s 2021 Community Grants Program.

The grant will fund its Community Connection­s for Mental Health and Wellbeing project, a wellbeing program focused on promoting mindfulnes­s, movement, meditation and connection to community to support participan­ts’ mental health and social connectedn­ess.

Waminda is one of 76 community organisati­ons across the country to receive a 2021 Australia Post Community Grant of up to $10,000.

Australia Post head of community Nicky Tracey said she was delighted to support projects making a real difference to health and wellbeing, with recipients based in every state and territory and half of the projects in regional and remote communitie­s.

“This has been another challengin­g year for many Australian­s, and we know that when we connect with others, we feel better, which is why the Community Grants program is so important — helping communitie­s build better connection­s and mental wellbeing,” Ms Tracey said.
