BHP and Hedland’s Well Women’s Centre are celebrating the continuation of a long running partnership.
The new $1.5 million dollar partnership over two years will provide funding for programs including Home Away from Home, health education and free access to allied health.
Chantel Cullen, Hedland Well Women’s Centre Chairperson said the funding makes a real impact on the lives of local women.
“After 32 years of service to the community of Hedland, we are excited to continue our partnership which enables the Hedland Well Women’s Centre to help fill the gap of health care disparity between Port Hedland and the metro area,” Chantel said.
“As a local community-based service, collaboration with BHP has enabled us to extend our service offering to reach more women in the community. We are proud of our history and look forward to continuing delivering improved outcomes to the women of the Hedland Community.”
Cindy Dunham, General Manager Port Operations, said BHP is pleased to support the Well Women’s Centre and the positive impact the partnership has on the local community.
“Our partnership aims to enhance the centre’s services, with a particular focus on reducing the sense of isolation people can feel living away from their established support networks,” they said.
