Up to $15,000 is available from This Girl Can to encourage women to get involved in local physical activity opportunities.
This Girl Can – Victoria local area marketing grants for councils
This Girl Can – Victoria is more than a physical activity campaign. This is about empowering women to feel comfortable in their bodies and in public spaces. This is about women getting active whenever, wherever and however they choose – without worrying about being judged.
Victorian local councils are invited to apply for a local area marketing grant to promote VicHealth’s highly successful This Girl Can – Victoria campaign, celebrating women who are all kinds of active.
Launched in 2018, the campaign has already inspired more than 285,000 Victorian women to get active so far. The campaign focuses on Victorian women aged 18 and over who are less active and aims to empower them to get active whenever, wherever and however they choose – without worrying about being judged.
Grants of $10,000–$15,000 (excluding GST) are available for councils to promote the campaign to women in their local community, and encourage women to get involved in local physical activity opportunities.
This funding is designed to be used for the cost of promotional activities and staff costs.
To be eligible for the This Girl Can – Victoria local area marketing grants, you must:
- be a Victorian local council
- register as a campaign supporter via the This Girl Can – Victoria website, agree to the terms and conditions and complete a brief Supporter Orientation Program the first time you login to the Campaign Supporter Hub.
- agree to the Funding Terms and Conditions.
Councils may work together with local sporting facilities or clubs to form a partnership application, however, funding will only be paid to the council, and the council must take the lead to administer funding on behalf of all partners.
Applications close 1 March 2019.
