Co-funding Round: Sidney Myer Fund and Pride Foundation Australia

November 26th, 2019

The Sidney Myer Fund and Pride Foundation Australia Board of Directors are pleased to announce our next joint funding round – the tenth in our collaboration.

A grant of up to $20,000 will be available to support an initiative improving the wellbeing of LGBTIA+ people who are refugees or seeking asylum.

Since 2014 PFA and the Sidney Myer Fund have collaborated to grant $145,000 to nine organisations working to address the wellbeing, inclusion or healthy ageing needs of older LGBTIA+ people or those living with a disability.

Previously funded projects include:

  • The Dementia Centre for Research Collaboration at the University of NSW’s project to evaluate an e-learning resource developed for those supporting LGBTI people with dementia and changed behaviours.
  • Melba Support Services’ Sexuality, Equality, Disability project, aiming to build the capacity of the disability sector to improve supports and outcomes for people with a disability who identify as LGBTI.
  • Asbergers Victoria’s Interpreting the Spectrums project which, in partnership with The Shed, Transgender Victoria and Spectrum Intersections is developing portable resource kits to explain common barriers for Autistic LGBTIQA+ people when accessing health services.

Further details of eligibility and expression of interest forms for the current co-funding round are available on the Pride Foundation Australia website.
