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).
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THESE 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.
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.
SCOPE OF GRANTS
In 2021, a total of $45,000 will be made available in our current grant round.
Applicants may apply for a grant
- to attend an existing Love Bites Facilitator workshop TRAINING CALENDAR
- to partially fund a Love Bites Facilitator Workshop for a group in your community. We are keen to see communities contribute a percentage of the funds to ensure their commitment to the program rollout. This will be determined on a case by case basis.
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).
- Applications open
- All applicants will be advised immediately as decisions are made on their application.
- Grant Requirements: All training to be scheduled and completed within 12 months unless otherwise agreed by NAPCAN.
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.
