SA Youth Action Plan - Youth Mental Wellbeing grant

Applications for the SA Youth Action Plan grants are open now.

The Department of Human Services (DHS) is currently developing South Australia’s next Youth Action Plan (YAP) to enhance fair and equitable access to opportunities, resources and supports for young people.

A recent consultation to inform the new YAP identified mental health and wellbeing as the biggest area of concern for young people and other key stakeholders.

In response to these findings, DHS is providing one-off grants of up to $15,000 for organisations working with young people to deliver initiatives that improve mental health and wellbeing among young South Australians.

The grant round seeks to increase support for young South Australians through community-based and non-clinical initiatives, with consideration being given to initiatives targeting regional and remote locations.

Further details about eligibility and selection criteria can be found in the SA Youth Action Plan Grant Funding Guidelines.
