SECTION 1: Your contact details

SECTION 2: Your work

SECTION 3: Your employer's support

We will contact your employer for a brief statement to support your funding application (for example, you can ask your supervisor, manager or coordinator to complete this). They will be asked:
  • why the organisation supports your funding application
  • how the organisation will support you to undertake your project
  • how the organisation will support you to use your funding outcomes to benefit people living with disability.
Please provide contact details for the person we should contact:

SECTION 4: Your proposal

Example: I want to learn Tai Chi. I understand Tai Chi can be adapted for seated exercise and that there is a DVD series to help guide sessions and maintain the skills.
Example: I’d like to run a weekly Tai Chi class for the people who attend the day activity centre where I work. Classes would be both seated and standing, so that as many people as possible could benefit.
Example: I have done yoga for some years and use some of what I know at work but many people aren’t able to get on the floor to do yoga. Tai Chi is a good alternative, particularly if I can learn and lead the seated program.
Example: The participants have varying levels of ability and many have chronic pain. Tai Chi will help them to improve their balance, flexibility, concentration, breathing, independent movement, confidence and wellbeing.
Example: There is a course starting at the Burnie Fitness Centre on 29 February. The course is in two parts – basic and advanced. Each course runs weekly for 10 weeks.

Grant uses


  • Jack supports three young guys who all love rock music and wish they could play it. Jack hasn’t played guitar for years. He’d like to buy a guitar and some sheet music to share with the people he supports, and take a refresher music course so he can help them learn to play.
  • Dawn is a keen gardener who would love to help the people she supports establish a community garden, so they can be more self-sufficient. She’d like to buy some tools, plants and materials, so she can help the people she supports set up a vegie patch and some fruit trees.
  • Leonie has always been afraid of the water but she’s now feeling brave enough to learn to swim. She would like swimming lessons so she can be confident supporting people who’d like to swim, sail, fish and play water sports.

Use your imagination! Just show how your plan will help both you and people living with disability, and we’ll consider it.

What doesn’t the grant fund?

Unfortunately, we can’t accept applications:

  • from organisations – applications must come from individual support workers.
  • for entry level disability support training (certificate courses)
  • for Auslan courses
  • for conference attendance; interstate or overseas travel; renting equipment or venues; or wages.

Margie couldn’t have lived her life, her way without her support workers. They treated their work as so much more than a job – it was a long-term labour of love.
