Trust Grants for Individuals

The Trust invites applications from such individuals, residents and past residents for assistance in meeting bushfire related medical and counselling costs which will be treated on a strictly confidential basis. The Trust Deed does not provide for funds to be used in support of individuals material or property needs.

Individuals Seeking Funding
Individual applicants seeking support to meet the costs of future counselling and related services are required to include:

  • A letter of endorsement from a local health provider detailing how the counselling or related services would contribute to their long term recovery.
  • Quantification of the funding sought, when it would be required, and the period over which the counselling or related services would be provided.

The Directors of the Trust consider applications every three to four months, however applications can be lodged at anytime and those which are considered pressing can be resolved as they arise. The next scheduled meeting will be held in December 2016. Application reminders will be included with each Strathewen Connect newsletter.
