Good News For TFER Partners

We’re very excited to announce that the TFER partnership has been successful in obtaining funding of $140,000 through the Commnity Partnerships for Primary Prevention (CPPP) Grant.

We would like to congratulate all grant recipients, particularly the four other funded projects from Melbourne’s Eastern Region.

WHE acknowledges the innovative ideas that were developed and put forward by TFER partners, but didn’t receive funding.  Lets hope we can find a way to progress this work together through other avenues over the next four years.

Thankyou to our partners for your support and we look forward to working with you all as we further the work of TFER.
