Member Exclusive Grant Opportunities 

The Supporting Stronger Communities (SSC) grant program gives Neighbourhood and Community Houses and Centres the opportunity to access funds to target poverty and disadvantage in their local communities. 

This grant provides up to $10,000 each for projects which tackle poverty and disadvantage in local communities. So far over 100 Neighbourhood Houses/Centres across Australia have received them to deliver important initiatives.

The grants are aimed at towns or cities with a population of more than 15,000 people. If you are from an area with a smaller population, see Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal’s (FRRR) Strengthening Rural Communities program.

To qualify, you need to be a member of Community Centres SA and have paid your membership fees.

Complimentary Epilepsy Training 

Thanks to a generous Stage Government Grant, The Epilepsy Centre are excited to be able to offer FREE training on Epilepsy awareness and seizure management.

They have been successfully rolling out our training,  now since mid-last year, reaching over 2000 people.

Over 250,000 Australians experience Epilepsy,  40% being under 16 years old and another 40% being over 65 years of age.

Many of these people and their families are left with managing significant challenges and isolation, and The Epilepsy Centre are here to change that, and offer support wherever they can. 

The Epilepsy Centre have had great feedback and if you would like to add FREE training on Epilepsy awareness and seizure management to your Community Centre’s Professional Development and training schedule, please contact Sharyn Calf.
