The Grit and Resilience Program Consortium welcomes two new Community Partners.  


In August 2022 the Program put out a call to the community seeking expressions of interest from people who would like to be actively involved in setting the strategic direction of the Grit and Resilience Program and help to build an inclusive, supportive, and well-connected community.  


“We are thrilled to have Ronan Holdsworth and Richard Grogan join the Program Consortium following the expression of interest process,” said Grit and Resilience Program Coordinator, Bek Nash-Webster 


“Both Ronan and Richard have been involved in activities supported by the Program and we are so pleased that they expressed an interest in becoming involved at the strategic level. They will now help to guide the direction of the Program bringing with them new perspectives and knowledge.”  


The two new Community Partners join Caz Sammon and John Davis who have been members of the Consortium since September 2020.  


The Consortium also includes representation from eight organisations: Rural City of Wangaratta, Gateway Health, Northeast Health Wangaratta, Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service, Albury Wodonga Health, Victoria Police, headspace Wangaratta and newest member The Centre - Sport North East.  


Currently funded to June 2023, the Grit and Resilience Program is taking a community-driven approach to better understand and address mental health and wellbeing across the Wangaratta municipality.
