Improving Wellbeing

The Tasmanian Community Fund is committed to providing funding to support projects that increase community wellbeing.

Applications for the 2022 Improving Wellbeing Grant Round have now closed. The 2023 Strategic Initiatives Grant Round will open in early 2023.

Applicants are encouraged to discuss project ideas with Tasmanian Community Fund staff (phone 6165 8333 or email admin@tascomfund.org) as early as possible.

The focus areas for the improving wellbeing rounds have been developed with feedback from the Tasmanian community and will continue to evolve.  The Tasmanian Community Fund’s improving wellbeing focus areas are currently:

  • improving mental health/wellbeing outcomes;
  • reducing violence including bullying;
  • increasing educational engagement and attainment;
  • enhancing preventable health outcomes;
  • reducing homelessness;
  • increasing community connection;
  • reducing social isolation;
  • diverting from the justice system;
  • addressing addictive behaviours.
