Third grant round opens for truth, healing and reconciliation

The Truth, Healing and Reconciliation Grants Program supports the recommendation by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, to continue to reveal the truth of what happened to children and contribute to healing and reconciliation in Queensland.

It is important that what was revealed by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is not forgotten and we continue to learn from the past.

The program will provide funding of up to $10,000 or $15,000 for joint applications, for community groups and organisations to undertake projects related to truth, healing and reconciling histories of people with lived experience of institutional child abuse across all Queensland communities. The total amount of funding available is $50,000.

Activities may include projects, events or initiatives that:

  • Acknowledge and raise awareness of institutional child abuse and its impact.
  • Promote cultural and community change in responding to people with lived experience of institutional child abuse and/or protecting children today.
  • Initiatives that educate and share the stories of people with lived experience in a safe and supportive way (e.g. truth telling, oral histories and creative art performances) such as exhibitions of art or writing, videos or podcasts.
  • Memorials, monuments or commemorative events that are of significance to people with lived experience.
  • Reunions and other events that are of importance to people with lived experience.

Applications for the grants program will close on Thursday, 25 November 2021. Find out more or apply.
