Introducing the BGWA Community Sub Fund
BGWA Community Sub Fund
Foundation Barossa would like to introduce The BGWA Community Sub Fund which was established in June 2019 with $5,000 seed funding from the Barossa Wine Auction.
The BGWA Community Sub Fund will be used to benefit the Barossa wine and grape growing community by increasing capability via knowledge and understanding about various issues relating to mental health. The outcomes will be designed to better equip members of the Barossa wine and grape growing community to engage in conversations and to provide active support for people, whose colleagues, friends or family members are facing mental health issues. It is intended that the grants will fund regular, formal mental health First Aid training. The training will cover areas such as what is mental illness, how to talk about mental health, the importance of self-care and how to support someone with mental health challenges.
