Coming Soon - Daughters of the West

Following on from the success of the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation’s “Sons of the West” Men’s Health Program, it has been confirmed in June, 2017 that the Foundation will introduce a sister program,  ‘Daughters of the West’ from October, 2017.

Still in the development stages, the program will be an adaption of the successful men’s health program model, targeting the health inequities that are experienced across the western suburbs of Melbourne and Ballarat.

To provide a steady and successful introduction of the women’s health initiative, Gordon Legal has announced a $200,000 donation to ensure its early implementation.

The program will also be delivered in partnership with the City of Ballarat, Maribyrnong City Council, Melton City Council and Wyndham City Council.
