 Small Grants Programme

Providing funds to assist individuals experiencing financial disadvantage particularly those with a physical disability. Applications are submitted by a Social Worker or employed professional of the supporting charitable organisation.

We understand that a personal crisis can appear quickly requiring quick attention.  Grant applications are processed weekly.  Support can be made available for almost any purpose considered necessary for the applicant's health and well-being, but because of the high demand for our limited resources we can help only when needs are the most desperate.  Even then we can help only to maintain the minimum standards of safety, security, protection and comfort for the individual or family.  

We may be able to assist with the providion of equipment for the disabled, payment of utility accounts to help maintain essential services, purchase of essential whitegoods for families with small children etc. 

Some 320 individual small grants were allocated during the 2015/2016 Financial Year.   Over 103 different charitable organisations operating throughout Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria assisted in facilitating payments to those that we were able to assist.
