    Dear Payden

    If you check out the Physical Activitiy funding section of the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet you may find funding to help with what you are trying to achieve with your program. Good luck with your program it sounds like you are doing a great job!

    Kind regards

    Hi all, I'm an aboriginal health worker in Bourke NSW I'm currently running a healthy lifestyles/exercise group which averages about 15-20 members a session (6am Tue,Thu). I managed to get some funding to get equipment and get it up and running. I was wondering if anyone knew of any funding grants available that would help us to expand our program to get some more groups running and hopefully a gym space?

    Hi Physical activity mob members,

    Did you know about Buroinjin, an Aboriginal version of handball. Read this good news story to learn how it will hopefully help raise awareness of mental health and increase knowledge of Indigenous history and culture.
