South Australia’s Commissioner for Children and Young People, Helen Connolly, has launched her Small Grants Program for 2023 and invites community groups, arts organisations, sporting clubs and local government to apply for small grants of up to $5,000 to undertake activities and projects to promote youth engagement, involve children and young people in decision making, and promote awareness relating to periods and menstrual equity.

There are three grant types on offer:

  1. Community Action Grants to promote participation of children and young people in the development of solutions and strategies to local community issues and challenges that they have identified.
  2. Child and Youth Engagement Grants to support community groups to devise and facilitate activities and projects that support recognition of children and young people as key stakeholders.
  3. Period Grants to support activities related to raising menstrual awareness, providing menstrual education, and supporting menstrual management with a focus on young people.
