The Guardian: Granting a bright future

Swan Hill
12 Jul 2019
$1,500 grants now available!

Due to the kindness of the family and friends of Jaiden Cottingham, a memorial fund has been created by headspace Swan Hill to remember the vibrant, adventurous and creative spirit of Jaiden. This memorial fund has been established to support young people in the headspace Swan HillRegion through the provision of a limited number of $1,500 financial grants.

“It is the dream of our family that finance would not be a restriction for someone seeking to follow their dreams,” says Jaiden’s Sister Meghan. “Jaiden always wanted to leave Swan Hill to experience something new, to find independence and build new skills… and then she brought those skills and that new experience back to better the town.”  

“We are grateful to be working with the Cottingham family in the delivery of this program and feel humbled celebrating the life of Jaiden in this way” says Mr Ian Johansen, the Manager of headspace Swan Hill. “We look forward to seeing applications from young people and reading about their plans and aspirations”.
