Community is What we Make it: Partnering with The Lions Club of Richmond

Over the last twelve months The Wyatt Trust and The Lions Club of Richmond have worked in partnership to deliver $31,204 to support youth-at-risk and youth education initiatives in Western Adelaide.

The two organisations have a long history of supporting South Australians in need, with The Lions Club of Richmond generating and distributing nearly $150,000 each year, and Wyatt, currently celebrating its 131st year of operation, working with more than 70 partner groups to support education, employment, housing and financial wellbeing initiatives throughout the State.

The partnership between the two organisations was established in July 2016 to reach young people experiencing disadvantage in Adelaide’s City of West Torrens, City of Marion and City of Charles Sturt.

With youth education as the focus, the funding has been awarded to eight projects addressing a diverse range of needs of young people living in these areas. Funded projects included:

The funding has provided invaluable assistance to young people experiencing financial disadvantage in Adelaide’s Western suburbs, and the two organisations are delighted to be continuing the partnership into the 2017/2018 financial year.
