Through the Direct Grants program, we help South Australian’s experiencing acute or chronic financial stress to stabilise their situation by providing one-off small grants that pay for a specific item, service or bill at the time it’s most needed.
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.
Please contact Wyatt on 8224 0074 if you are applying 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 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.
We are in the process of developing a new online grant application system, and in the interim we are unable to accept new enquiries or applications from COB 4th April 2023. We appreciate the disruption that this may cause and thank you for your patience while we implement an interim solution.
