CHELTENHAM Community Centre will receive a $10,000 grant through Australia Post’s 2021 community grants program.
The centre was chosen for a grant because of its work in mental health. It will fund the CCC Chatty Cafe project, providing a cafe space for people to connect in.
Australia Post head of community Nicky Tracey said “this has been another challenging year for many Australians, and we know that when we connect with others, we feel better, which is why the community grants program is so important – helping communities build better connections and mental wellbeing. It’s also an incredibly diverse group of worthy recipients, supporting groups such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, people with a disability or care commitments, LGBTIQ+ communities, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities and seniors.”.
