The South Australian Business Chamber is pleased to announce that it has been able to award eight peak bodies, membership and business associations with funding that will encourage the creation or enhancement of industry-led healthy workplace initiatives.
The Healthy Workplaces Strategy Grants Program is funded by Wellbeing SA and administered by South Australian Business Chamber.
Elisa Pecorelli, General Manager, Programs and Consulting who is leading this important Program says “We had close to 30 applications for funding. This tells me that associations and peak bodies know the circumstances, needs and challenges experienced within their own industry and member businesses and are highly committed to support initiatives to address these challenges within their member businesses and industries”.
Ms Pecorelli said ‘that while the applications were all very worthy, our eight grant recipients applications were of very high quality. These applications really addressed the key priorities of the Program, including high membership reach, supporting industry with Aboriginal, migrant, regional/remote, low income or low education groups, and/or high need industry with chronic health conditions and/or total injury claims”.
Successful grant recipients include:
Ms Pecorelli says “I have started working with representatives from each of these associations and peak bodies, and they are extremely passionate and committed to deliver their projects that will support workplace health and wellbeing initiatives across their various industries.
