WA Primary Health Alliance has awarded more than $4.2 million in grants to 25 organisations in a commitment to fostering more innovation, collaboration, and resilience across the network of primary health care organisations.
The Organisational Strengthening and Development Grants Program 2022 will support organisations to implement effective and sustainable organisational change that will increase their capacity and capability to better meet the primary health needs of the community.
We are committed to supporting continuous improvement within primary health care. These grants will enable organisations to develop and strengthen their internal capacity and capability, which will ultimately improve their service delivery.
Three key grant streams, integrated healthcare, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural safety, and LGBTIQ+ inclusivity, were identified through WAPHA’s Strategic Plan, health priorities, and Commonwealth guidance.
This grant opportunity attracted a significant number of quality submissions across all streams and was highly competitive.
WA Primary Health Alliance General Manager Commissioned Services, Mark Cockayne, said the grants offered a great opportunity for primary health care organisations to undertake activities to improve their internal capacity and capability.
“Through these grants, we’re supporting these organisations to continuously improve and provide inclusive, safe and effective care.
“This is an ongoing journey and one which both we, and our commissioned service providers, are wholeheartedly committed to.
