Money to promote physical activity

A $179,000 Federal Government investment in Horsham Golf Club is part of a suite of national grants designed to help Australians participate in sport and physical activity.

Member for Mallee Anne Webster welcomed the Horsham Golf Club allocation as well as $250,000 for the Sunraysia Mallee Ethnic Communities Council.

She said the Horsham and Sunraysia beneficiaries were among 57 successful recipients selected as part of a Driving Social Inclusion through Sport and Physical Activity program.

“Horsham Golf Club was identified as serving an important role in bridging the divide and encouraging social inclusion,” she said.

“SMECC’s program ‘Inclusive Sports for the Newly Arrived’ is a great initiative to get recently arrived immigrants involved in sport and into the community, allowing them to get involved in the community quickly, creating rapid social cohesion.”

Ms Webster said the grants were the outcome of a competitive process run by the Federal Government last year. The program attracted more than 850 applications. 

She said all projects awarded funding were recommended by the Department of Health.
