Westpac Safer Children, Safer Communities Impact Grants 2020

Westpac want to work with organisations that are helping to protect and create safer communities for children in Australia, with a focus on helping prevent the sexual exploitation and abuse of children, including online sexual exploitation of children. Through their Impact Grants, they are looking to support a range of new and innovative ideas as well as evidence-based innovative models.

There are two types of Impact Grants:

Seed Grants: Up to 12 one-off grants of $50,000 for early stage programs and initiatives or organisations building, testing, or piloting an innovative idea.

Scale Grants: Up to eight multi-year grants of $300,000 per year over three years for organisations with existing evidence-based innovative models looking to scale and move to their next stage of growth.

Applications are open now, and close on 17 August. To find out more or apply, visit the Westpac website.
