Our Community Wellbeing Grants program aims to support local groups who do amazing work to improve the wellbeing of the community.
Grant amounts between $500 and $2,500 are available to not-for-profit groups serving the community in our catchment area.
To be eligible for funding, organisations will need to demonstrate how a project will contribute to the mental and/or physical wellbeing of our community, especially for:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people,
- Youth or
- people living with a disability and their carers.
Projects (including an event, a program or service) must demonstrate how they meet an identified need of the community or how they build skills or knowledge within the community in relation to the aims listed above.
All applications are assessed against eligibility criteria and evaluated on their community impact.
Organisations can only apply for one grant in a single round of funding.

Conditions of funding
If you receive a grant, we may ask you to take part in some publicity, most likely when the funding has been used to purchase services or equipment.
Successful organisations need to provide feedback to show the grant has been spent appropriately. This evidence can be provided in many ways, which will be discussed in more detail if your application is successful, but might include a report, copies of receipts or photographs.
As part of your application, we will ask you to accept our full Terms of Grant.
How to apply
Grant applications are now closed for 2020.
Information will be updated in mid 2021 on how to apply for the 2021 grant program.
A panel of judges from departments across our hospital assess each application against set criteria. The panel considers the aims of the project, the number of people who will benefit and the wider community benefits.
For 2020 applications, grant offers will be made by 16 November 2020 for those that submitted applications.
