Regional Men’s Health Funding continues

by Aaron Delaporte

Bowls WA in partnership with the Regional Men’s Health Initiative are please to advise further funding is available and are seeking clubs to host their Working with Warriors program.

With a primary role of delivering education and awareness programs on men’s holistic wellbeing and health, the Working with Warriors – Talk to a Mate initiative will see funding of up to $1,000 per event made available to country clubs/leagues to meet the costs of hosting a speaking engagement (funding cannot be used for prize money). Each engagement can be tailored to suit the particular event, whether that be after or during a bowls carnival or a stand-alone function.

Fifteen clubs across Country Western Australia have already held a Men’s Health session and the responses have been fantastic.
