Community Engagement Grants Round 4

To support local community groups and organisations to develop projects or initiatives which make their community more dementia-friendly, Dementia Australia is providing limited grant funding of $10,000 per grant. This funding is to ensure people living with dementia, their families and carers, are supported to remain socially connected and meaningfully involved in community life.

The Community Engagement Program (CEP) supports local community associations, businesses, organisations, and groups to develop dementia-friendly communities projects that engage community interest, in-kind contributions and existing resources. Three grants’ rounds have been delivered so far, with funds totalling more than $700,000 delivered to over 60 groups.

Each grant recipient is required to actively involve and include people living with dementia in the design and delivery of community-focused project or activity.

Dementia Australia is very proud to support these projects and welcomes enquiries to find out more.

Grant applications for projects in 2023-24 are now open.
