Sue Salthouse Named Fund
The Sue Salthouse fund will seek to empower people with disability to pursue leadership development opportunities including attending conferences, university, mentoring, skill building courses and activate ideas that change lives. More information about how people can apply for support from the fund will be released in the coming weeks.
The Sue Salthouse named leadership fund has been established to assist people with disability to access opportunities that build skills and experience, enhancing the representation and leadership capacity of people with disability.
The fund recognises Sue’s hard work championing inclusion and leadership opportunities for people with disability and focuses specifically on women and girls.
Hands Across Canberra will administer the $75,000 seeding fund on behalf of the ACT Government’s Community Services Directorate. They will work with an advisory group, comprising of Sue’s family and ACT Disabled People’s Organisations including Women with Disabilities ACT and Advocacy for Inclusion, to advise and progress leadership and representation of people with disability. The fund is anticipated to grow through philanthropic support.
