Hey Grants

The HEY Grants are now closed for 2016-17.

The HEY Grants support organisations (both specialist SSASGD and mainstream youth organisations) to undertake mental health promotion and community engagement activities that focus on same sex attracted and sex and gender diverse (SSASGD) young people, aged between 14 and 25 years. The HEY Grants are intended to assist in the development of new and innovative approaches to address and support the mental health of SSASGD young people. They will also support the implementation of tried and tested models in communities where existing support for SSASGD young people is limited.

Small grants will be distributed to organisations that engage SSASGD young people in initiatives such as (but not limited to):

  • social support groups and networks
  • mainstream anti-homophobia, anti-transphobia and diversity campaigns and programs
  • SSASGD youth leadership, mentoring and peer education.

In addition, grants may support organisations to:

  • engage with the emerging SSASGD youth platform to improve the quality and reach of services they provide to SSASGD young people
  • enhance the capacity of the youth and mainstream health and community sectors to better respond to the needs of SSASGD young people and challenge discriminatory environments.
