How we help:
Small Grants and Bursaries Scheme
The Small Grants and Bursaries Program is a component of the national ICAFSS program provided by Relationships Australia organisations and led by Relationships Australia SA.
The purpose of the SGB Program is to support and address the needs of the intercountry adoption community in ways that may not be possible through the Therapeutic Care or Community Capacity Building components of the service. The SGB Program is intended to support adoptees and adoptive families to connect with others with shared experiences, support the development of community based initiatives and to support adoptees through small contributions to costs associated with their adoption (bursaries).
The primary focus of the SGB Program is to fund grants directed to projects and activities that enable peer groups or intercountry adoptee and family support community organisations to build connection and support. Bursaries are a secondary element that are approved in exceptional circumstances to assist individual adoptees only with a small contribution toward the cost of practical items.
The Intercountry Adoptee and Family Support Service (ICAFSS) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services
