Li-Ve Fuller FAQ

If it fits into the current theme, you can use a Li-Ve Fuller grant to learn something new, achieve a personal goal or master an existing skill. You just need to show how this will benefit people living with disability, both up front and in the longer term.

The purpose of the grant is to encourage people already working in the disability sector to grow their skills and confidence in supporting people with their hobbies, skills and interests.

So, unfortunately, we can’t accept applications:

  • from organisations – applications must come from individual support workers
  • for disability support training (for example certificate and diploma courses)
  • for conference attendance, interstate or overseas travel, renting equipment or venues, or wages
  • for Auslan courses - we believe organisations should provide training for staff to develop the communications skills they need if they support people with hearing impairment.

You can apply for a Li-Ve Fuller grant if you work in the disability field in Tasmania (in residential or day support or any other capacity) and you want to learn something new, achieve a personal goal or master an existing skill. You just need to show how this will benefit people living with disability, both up front and in the longer term.

If you work in Tasmania in the disability sector, you're eligible. It doesn't matter what role you have.

As long as you work for an organisation in the disability sector in Tasmania and your employer supports your application, you can apply.

You can ask for up to $2,000 in your application. You need to provide a broken down list of the project costs and links to where you will purchase the items from (if available).

You can apply for a grant towards an existing skill or project if it’s a new/extended and discrete/separate part of an existing project. For example, if you are a keen flower gardener who wants to learn about growing vegetables, we would consider your application because growing vegetables is a new and separate skill.

To apply, you must: use the official form, submit your application by the advertised due date, and include contact details for a support person (e.g. your employer, supervisor or team leader) on the application form. Remember to include a detailed budget breakdown.
