Working Together Grants

An initiative of Logan Community Bank® branches of Bendigo Bank and Logan City Council, the Working Together grants provide funding to deliver projects in the City of Logan to meet an identified community priority area through a predetermined theme.

The objectives of the grant program are:

  • To support projects and activities that respond to a pre-determined theme in an identified community priority area.
  • To create opportunities for the community to be engaged and benefit from a meaningful program in the City of Logan.

Round 1 2018 Theme: Men's Health

We invite organisations to apply for up to $4000 to deliver projects that provide an opportunity to enhance the health of men, boys and their families living in the City of Logan.

Projects can explore different ways men and boys can keep healthy, physically and emotionally.

Why Men's Health?

  • 49.5% of the population living in Logan are male.
  • Men take their own lives 4 times more than the rate of women (that's 5 a day nationally!)
  • 1 in 2 men experience mental health at some point in their lives.
  • Compared to women, men visit the doctor less frequently, have shorter visits, and only attend when their illness is in its later stages.
  • Indigenous males are 3 times more likely to have a potentially preventable hospitilisation as non-Indigenous males.
  • 60% of men do not feel like they a part of a community
