The GIVE Program has closed

Our GIVE Program closed on 30 June 2020. Applications for Round 2 funding closed in early May and applicants were notified of outcomes on 12 June. Round 3 and 4 will no longer go ahead. If you have any questions or need assistance to source funding for items that are not eligible for NDIS or State Government funding, please speak with your Key Worker or contact us.

Our Grants for Inclusion, Value and Equality (GIVE) assist with the purchase of items and activities that promote independence, participation and social inclusion of people living with disability.

How does the program work?

The charitable program provides grant packages of $500, $1000, $2500 and $5000 to assist with the purchase of items such as equipment, communication devices, sporting and recreational activities, home and garden modifications, vehicle modifications, respite, memberships and much more.

GIVE Program funding rounds are held quarterly (4 times a year) with applications open for 4 weeks.

2020 Funding Rounds

The number of packages available each round depends on the amount of funding available.

If the number of applications for a grant package exceeds the number available, then applications will be placed into a draw. For example, if 3 x $500 grant packages are available in a round and 5 applications are received, then all 5 applications will go into a draw and the first 3 drawn will be awarded funding – so long as the applications meet the eligibility criteria.
