Grants for community organisations

Are you part of a community organisation or group with a great idea for tackling cyberbullying in your local community? Why not apply for a grant to put your idea into action?

Community organisations can apply for grants of between $1,500 to $5,000 to deliver a wide range of projects and initiatives that aim to tackle cyberbullying, such as:

  • organising games, activities and youth programs
  • creating information resources, artwork, videos, films, poetry, books, t-shirt designs
  • developing computer games, online programs, websites, apps or social media campaigns
  • other creative ideas promoting positive relationships that will help tackle cyberbullying - express yourself.

The initiatives should empower young people aged 10 - 17 years to become positive social leaders/influencers by:

  • developing respectful and positive relationships and interpersonal skills in their community and peer groups
  • creating supportive and healthy environments for young people, focusing on empathy and early intervention
  • building resilience and encouraging young people who observe cyberbullying to speak up and safely intervene to support others when required.

Grants will be awarded to successful applicants to implement programs between 15 August and 15 November 2019. Applications close midnight, 23 June 2019.

Read more about these grants on the Tackle Cyberbullying Grant Information Paper – community organisations (PDF).

We are also asking young people about the types of initiatives they think would help tackle cyberbullying. Head to eHub to see what they are saying and you may find inspiration for your community organisation's application.

In some circumstances, organisations that are a not-for-profit legal entity can partner with an existing not-for-profit legal entity. Further information is available at the Not-for-profit law hub.
