Funding Awarded for Women's Study Centre

A local Eyre Peninsula organisation is one of the 22 regional community groups across the country sharing in $250,000 through the ANZ Seeds of Renewal program.


The 2021 program is supporting remote, rural and regional communities to improve their environmental sustainability, increase financial wellbeing in communities or improve housing access for those at risk of homelessness or for people living with a disability. 

Port Lincoln’s Yarredi Services has received over $5,000 for a women’s wellbeing and safety hub study centre, aiming to create a safe environment where indigenous women and girls can access a number of services to improve their financial outcomes.

Since 2003, the program has awarded over $5-million dollars to more than 800 projects.
