Barwon Health Foundation Grant Awards

Barwon Health Foundation Grant Awards

The Barwon Health Foundation is passionate about supporting the lifesaving and life-enhancing work of Barwon Health, all across the organisation. 

As a Foundation we are in awe of the compassion, comfort and care that Barwon Health provide to our community, each and every day. 

And that's why, it recently gave us such pleasure to award the first round of successful grant applicants in March this year. 

The Barwon Health Foundation grant awards were established to ensure the Foundation are investing in the equipment, care and projects of greatest priority and need across Barwon Health.

The inaugural round received an overwhelming response and the Foundation Grants Committee were overcome by both the number and quality of applications received.
