Apply now for a career kick-start
THE Mid Richmond Education Fund is calling for applications from young people needing financial help to further their education or start employment.
The fund was launched in June and its president, David Parkinson said the organisation had been busy fundraising and seeking support from the community to get the project off the ground.
"We are now in a position to invite young people who will need to demonstrate a financial need to apply for funds," he said.
"The Mid Richmond Education Fund is a not-for-profit organisation set up purely to assist young people within our community who have a difficulty in funding themselves for the next stage of their lives."
Mr Parkinson said the need was obvious, with many young people finding it hard to make the transition from school to university, TAFE or start employment without the necessary support.
"This is early days for the Mid Richmond Education Fund and we need to build our financial base."
