Be Connected program grants support older people (over 50's) in Australia to improve their digital skills, safety and confidence. There is a range of funding available to community organisations to support older people in their communities to embrace digital technology, including grants for digital skills program delivery, community events, digital mentor training and setting up loan digital device programs.
We also occasionally offer grant funding for other digital inclusion projects to reach more people impacted by the digital divide. These include digital health literacy grant funding and place-based pilot project funding for community organisations to deliver these essential programs to adults in their community.
Grants are available to organisations registered as part of Good Things Foundation Australia's national Be Connected Network.
The following are grant opportunities that were previously available to Be Connected Network Partners, and are now closed for applications. If you'd like to be alerted to when new grants are available subscribe to the Network Partner Newsletter.
