Collaborative Workforce Grants

The Collaborative Workforce Grants support organisations to develop the capacity of their staff and organisations to respond to workforce challenges.

The program provides up to $10,000 for an activity or project and are a great opportunity for organisations to work together on a project that may have been on the agenda but needed support to complete.

The grants align with WorkUP and the sector’s shared workforce priorities to grow, retain, develop, support and connect the workforce, and sustain services.

The following organisations* were awarded grants in 2020 for projects to be completed in 2021:

  • Micah Projects: We are all Works in Progress: Developing the skills of those working with domestic violence perpetrators
  • Brisbane Rape and Incest Survivors Support Centre: Practicing: Cultural Healing and Diversity (CHAD)
  • Children by Choice: Sharing knowledge: Working with women with intellectual disability at the intersection of violence, reproductive coercion and unplanned pregnancy
