LOVE BiTES - Run Against Violence Grants Program

ROUND ONE FULLY ALLOCATED IN 2021

SEE LIST OF SUCCESSFUL ROUND ONE RECIPIENTS HERE

ROUND TWO CLOSED 4 FEBRUARY (recipients to be announced soon)

Thank you for your interest in the Love Bites – Run Against Violence Grants Program

These new grants are a partnership between Run Against Violence and NAPCAN (National Association for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect).

Aim of the grants

Love Bites is an interactive, whole-community respectful relationships education program for young people. NAPCAN trains community members as Love Bites Facilitators who are then able to deliver the program in school and out-of-school settings in their local areas. Read MORE about Love Bites and Love Bites Junior.

In some areas the cost of training facilitators is a barrier to building up or sustaining the Love Bites program.

These grants will help to ensure that facilitators can be trained in areas of need and that Love Bites can be delivered to as many young people as possible. This may include sustaining or expanding Love Bites where it is already established, or bringing Love Bites to new communities.

We have aimed to make the application process as simple as possible and to keep the grants flexible so that they can support areas of greatest need.

Scope of grants

The RAV Love Bites Grants Program offers funding support to enhance and expand Love Bites in communities across Australia.

Applicants are able to apply for funding for a range of activities to support the delivery of Love Bites:

  • Use the Individual Grant Application above to apply for funding for up to three people to attend an existing Love Bites Facilitator workshop (View workshops on the TRAINING CALENDAR)
  • Use the Major Grant Application to apply for funding for more than 3 people to be trained, a community group training of 15+ people, or an adaptation of Love Bites for a specific community setting.

Assessing grants

Grants will be assessed on the ability to help individuals or communities struggling with funding, or where we believe grants will contribute the most benefit.

It will be up to the discretion of the selection committee to determine how to best allocate the funding in order to maximise the benefits to communities (i.e. larger grants will need to show a greater reach than smaller grants and contribute a portion of the funding).

Transparency is a key value of the RAV Grants program. While NAPCAN will make recommendations to RAV, the ultimate decision on funding allocation will reside with the RAV Committee Members. Having distance from the final decision will benefit NAPCAN’s relationship with our community partners.

Acquittal

To acquit the Grant, all Grantees will be required to respond to a short survey on the benefits of the grant within a 12-month period.
