In 2018 we embarked on a Theory of Change process to better understand how change occurs for individuals and households we seek to assist, and how we can best support, encourage and serve South Australians in need.
Using our Theory of Change as a foundation Wyatt works to challenge inequality and eradicate poverty for South Australians by providing support in three targeted funding streams: Direct Grants, Partnership Grants and Insight Grants.
Wyatt’s Trust Deed requires that Wyatt grants are attributable to individuals who meet the following eligibility criteria
are on a low income and are experiencing financial hardship;
are South Australian residents and have spent at least five years in SA.
Wyatt’s Direct Grants Program provides carefully targeted, one-off grants to eligible South Australians in response to a specific financial need, where the grant has the potential to make a significant impact.
Wyatt’s Partnership Grants help extend the reach and impact of our grant-making by providing brokerage funding to trusted partners for distribution to eligible South Australians on our behalf.
The Insights Grants Program is an evidence-led approach to grant-making which combines community voice, local data and collaborative approaches to enable Wyatt to further understand and address the systemic issues impacting on South Australians in poverty.
