Wesley Mission cares for the vulnerable and disadvantaged and has been delivering services to these communities for over 150 years.
The grant will allow Wesley to respond to some of the unmet demand for its In Charge of My Money workshops. It anticipates delivering an additional 276 workshop sessions to benefit about 1,900 participants in metropolitan and regional NSW.
The workshops will be delivered through community organisations who have existing relationships with target groups – drug, alcohol or gambling recovery programs and community outreach for women at risk of homelessness and domestic violence.
The extra scale will also allow the formal evaluation of the program to have a larger sample size.
