Employment Partnership Grants
Since 2016 we’ve awarded grants of $300,000 over 3 years to 14 social enterprises working to address deeply entrenched social issues.
Together, these social enterprises are forecast to create 5,800 jobs, training and work experience pathways for those who need it most by 20221.
Financial support is just the beginning. We also offer a range of programs to help build the capacity of the organisations we back through access to business expertise, resources and networks through our connection to Westpac Group and many other partner organisations committed to driving social change.
Grants re-open 2020
We are currently developing a new employment-focused grant to be launched in 2020 based on excellence in collaboration. As a result, our Employment Partnership Grant social enterprise grant program is not opening for applications in 2019.
If you are interested in applying for an Employment Partnership Grant in 2020, you can complete our Self-Assessment Survey to give you an early indication if your organisation is a good fit and at the right scale to be considered in the future. More information on the new grant program will be available in early 2020. Please subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Westpac Sustain for the latest news.
