Acknowledging the difficulty of managing financial obligations on a fixed, low income, 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.
Direct Grants are available in four areas:
Financial Wellbeing – to help regain control of a household budget or stabilise a housing situation
Youth Education – to meet expenses related to early childhood, primary and secondary school education, in particular, expenses which support education retention
Vocational Training – to promote and maintain engagement with vocational pathways leading to employment opportunities
Work Start – to provide necessary assistance for applicants to gain or retain employment.
Applications are accepted from professionals working in a recognised organisation, on behalf of eligible clients experiencing hardship. Enquiries and applications are submitted online through Wyatt’s OnLine Grants Application (OLGA) portal.
Please contact Wyatt on 8224 0074 if you are using the OLGA portal for the first time or if you have any questions regarding the process.
Bill Cossey AM Grant Program
From 1 July 2021 the Bill Cossey AM Grants Program will be administered by Wyatt on behalf of the Adelaide Benevolent Society.
All other aspects of the grant program, including funding availability, grant eligibility and type of assistance remain the same.
A single application via OLGA is used to assess Wyatt grants and Bill Cossey AM grants. If you are specifically applying for a Bill Cossey AM grant, please note this in your application, however please be aware that Wyatt will use discretion in determining whether to process the application as a Bill Cossey AM or Wyatt request in order to maximise the benefit to the applicant and the impact of both funds.
