Brain Cancer Survivorship Grant Opportunity

Funder:  Federal – Health

Grant Background:  There are no known prevention measures for brain cancer and for some types of brain cancer, no effective treatments. It is widely recognised that the key to improvements in this area is investment in research.

The objective of the 2019 Brain Cancer Survivorship Grant Opportunity is:

  • to support the development of better approaches to address the medical, functional and psychosocial impacts of brain cancer to improve quality of life and the survivorship experience.

Survivorship must be focused on children, adolescents and young adults, or adults with malignant brain cancer, their families or carers.

Areas of focus may include:

  • medical, functional and psychosocial impacts of brain cancer – for example: cognitive, executive and memory impairment; fatigue; behavioural issues; seizures or toxicities of anticonvulsants; and fitness to drive
  • impact on survivors, their families and carers – for example: anxiety and depression; and long-term impacts including economic impact
  • efficacy of new or existing models of care and interventions, including the factors that contribute to success – for example: efficacy of new or existing models of care which involve nurse care coordinators, and components of the care model which contribute to success; and impact of rural and remote patient locality on effectiveness of survivorship clinics.

The intended outcomes of this grant opportunity are to develop:

  • a better understanding of the effects and impact of symptoms on quality and quantity of life, independence, function and disability
  • develop new care models that improve the experience of survivors, their families and carers.

Community Futures Grant

Funder:  Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation

Grant Background:  The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation (RASF) is offering an opportunity for community-minded people to be awarded up to $25,000 in funding for drought and bushfire recovery community projects in their local area.

Previously funding has gone to projects including air-conditioning in the local hall to portable yard panels for the showground or a pop-up gazebo, satisfying community needs and benefiting many. This year the funding is targeting regional recovery following the destruction of community facilities and projects devastated by the ongoing drought and current bushfire crisis.

The RASF invites ideas that deliver strong community benefits and result in enhanced economic and social outcomes for your community. This year projects should assist the recovery and rebuilding of drought and bushfire affected towns. Projects that involve collaboration between people in your town and deliver sustained and broad community benefits will be highly regarded. Applicants will be passionate about rural and regional NSW and have a good understanding of any issues affecting their community.

Infrastructure for local showgrounds and Show Societies are eligible. The improvements must demonstrate that they go beyond benefiting just the local Show Society in running the local Show, but rather enabling broader use by other community groups to run on-going projects or programs.
