Improving social and emotional health

Mr Chester said, "The $59,500 grant will support the activation and pathways project to improve social and emotional health and build resilience within the wider Sale community. The garden is an excellent project that welcomes all members of the community to engage in worthwhile projects and learn new skills and improve health and wellbeing. The Tackling Tough Times Together program is a rolling grants program and I encourage drought-affected communities to apply for the next open round of funding."
