Cash pledge for SALT

 Sport and Life Training (SALT) would receive a $250,000 boost under a re-elected Morrison Government.

Liberal Casey MP Tony Smith announced the funding pledge at Mooroolbark Soccer Club alongside Families and Social Services Minister Paul Fletcher.

Mr Fletcher said the funding would recognise the important work SALT was doing in bringing communities together through local sporting culture.

Mr Smith said SALT did a great job working with football clubs in the region to deliver programs to support youth mental health and wellbeing.

He said the commitment would enable SALT to expand its programs into soccer and other sports throughout the outer east, Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley.

SALT is a not-for-profit health promotion organisation that’s been operating since 2011.
