Applications for the Fay Fuller Foundation’s long-term mental health funding for rural and regional SA will close 5 August.

The foundation will provide funding and support for up to 10 years to two South Australian towns to tackle their specific mental health challenges.

Be quick as applications Our Town close on 5 August. Go to fayfullerfoundation.com.au for further details and how to apply.

The multi-million dollar Our Town funding will see the Fay Fuller Foundation partnering with towns for up to a decade to tackle their mental health challenges. The Fay Fuller Foundation is a philanthropic organisation based in Adelaide that has provided funding to a range of organisations to improve the health of South Australians since 2003.

Our Town funding is for towns with populations of approximately 10,000 people or less, or clusters of towns with combined populations of less than 10,000 people.

Initially, 6 towns will be chosen for 6-12 months of mentoring and support to further explore their issues and look at possible solutions to make the changes they hope to see.

‘The idea for Our Town came from a research report we commissioned which showed how major the issue of mental health is in regional SA. We have chosen smaller rural and regional towns as we felt that they may not have the resources or influence to attract the funding required to make significant change.’

The Fay Fuller Foundation is committed to working for South Australians and wants every South Australian to be as healthy as they can be.
