Grants Opportunities
Posted 3 years ago

Cancer Australia is inviting applications for “Supporting People with Cancer Grant Initiative” to reduce the burden of cancer through the provision of grants to community organizations and encourage effective partnerships between organizations in order to improve coordination, accessibility and development of quality cancer support networks to better support people affected by cancer.

The outcome of the initiative is to build evidence-based information and improve access to quality, coordinated and sustainable cancer support networks for all Australians.

2019 Priority Target Areas

The areas of priority for applicants to target have been strengthened and aligned to Cancer Australia’s Strategic Plan 2014-2019. This Framework consists of two categories.

Category one: improving outcomes for people whose outcomes are poor and demonstrating impact at a health systems level and/or community systems level:

  • People whose outcomes are poorer
  • Regional and rural areas

Category two: improving support, consumer involvement, and evidence-based information at a local level:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • People from low socioeconomic status areas
