More than $77,000 in grants has been awarded to 11 community groups and local governments for projects that focus on addressing the unique issues faced by women.

Funding has been provided through the Grants for Women program with the aim to help women achieve economic independence and improve their lives.

The Inspire Change project received a grant of $10,000 and will conduct a series of workshops in Kwinana and Mandurah for women with young or primary-aged children. 

How to build resilience and economic independence will be covered at the workshops. Topics will include financial literacy, budgeting, loans and superannuation, alternative economic opportunities and childcare options and access.

Angelhands Inc's Trauma Recovery Training, which supports people affected by homicide and serious violence, has received nearly $10,000 for trauma recovery training. The funds will upskill 20 women to deliver specialised trauma services and gain valuable experience in the mental health industry.

Applications for the Grants for Women program are now being accepted, with grants of up to $10,000 available.
