Meerilinga Children and Community Foundation have today announced the recipients of the 2022 Go for 2&5 Children’s Week Community Grants.
Of the 95 entries 84 grants have been approved, coming from regions across Western Australia including the Gascoyne, Goldfields and Esperance, Great Southern, Kimberley, Midwest, Peel, Pilbara, Southwest, and the Wheatbelt.
The grants will allow communities all over Western Australia to celebrate a child’s right to ‘a standard of living that supports their wellbeing and healthy development’ by hosting events for local residents, children, and families to attend.
The successful applicants will host an array of exciting community events including messy play days, planting vegie gardens, family fun days, puppet making workshops, obstacle courses, and so much more.
Meerilinga Children and Community Foundation CEO, Lesley Moreschi said: “This year we received so many fantastic Go for 2&5 Children’s Week Community Grant applications. We are delighted to have been able to support so many of them with funding to make their Children’s Week events possible.
“We are exceptionally proud to be able to support these events across regional Western Australia. We would not be able to do this without funding from our generous sponsors.”
The 2022 Go for 2&5 Children’s Week Community Grants are supported by Healthway, Lotterywest, and the Department of Communities.
Children’s Week WA takes place from the 22 – 30 October 2022 and will officially launch with the Go for 2 & 5 Children’s Week Family Fun Day at Whiteman Park on Sunday, 23 October.
