R U OK?Day Community Grants

400X600 Hands Web

Are you planning activities for R U OK?Day and could use a little help?

The LifeSpan Newcastle team has 10 community grants available to those organising R U OK?Day events in the Newcastle Local Government Area (LGA).

R U OK?Day is Thursday 13th September – a national reminder that we’ve all got what it takes to ask “Are you OK?” and support those struggling with life.

Each community grant consists of:

  • $200 to support your R U OK?Day event
  • 10 Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) training licenses to promote suicide prevention within your group/organisation.

QPR training is a short online course designed to help you recognise and respond to a suicide crisis. Read more about it HERE.

To apply, complete the form below and return by Friday 24th August.
