What do the judges look for?
Judges welcome applications that are particularly creative, innovative and that connect well with the theme. They look for applications that are put forward by organisations that have not received small grant funding in recent years. Judges also look for projects that work as partnerships between organisations, particularly partnerships between mental health organisations and non-mental health organisations.
Volunteering can make us healthier and happier because it allows us to boost our sense of achievement, expand our social networks and learn new skills - while giving something back. Join more than six million Australians who volunteer in our community - there is a role to suit you.
