Grants

Move Improve Remove campaign grants

Move Your Body grant applications have now closed and are in the process of being reviewed.

Injury Matters delivers two Stay On Your Feet® campaigns each year, which focus on modifiable risk factors for falls, under the Move Your Body, Improve Your Health, and Remove Hazards messages. For each campaign, Move Improve Remove grants of up to $5,000 (plus GST) are available, up to a total of $15,000 (plus GST) per round.

The Move Improve Remove grants program provides groups and organisations with the opportunity to deliver falls prevention programs within their community, which directly support older adults. Grant-funded programs may be appropriate for filling a gap in services, increasing access to services, or improving falls prevention systems. Using grant funding to pilot a new program allows applicants to demonstrate the viability and effectiveness of a program, which can assist with obtaining ongoing funding for the activity.

The capacity building nature of the Move Improve Remove grants program allows Injury Matters to support groups and foster skills among applicants through grant coaching. Coaching may include the identification of need, planning, and development of a project, implementation, and evaluation to increase project sustainability. The grants program also contributes to raising awareness among community members of campaign focused falls prevention strategies.

Injury Matters provides Move Improve Remove grants with funding from the Western Australian Department of Health.

Grant funding amount

Injury Matters will award up to $5,000 (plus GST) per grant, for eligible organisations and community groups to deliver falls prevention projects within their community. Applicants do not need to apply for the full amount and are encouraged to seek in-kind support where possible to allow opportunities for additional projects to be funded.
