2021-22 Grants Program released

The Truth, Healing and Reconciliation Grants Program supports the recommendation by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, to continue to reveal the truth of what happened to children and contribute to healing and reconciliation in Queensland.

The grants program, delivered by the Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs, provides funding of up to $10,000 for individual applications and $15,000 for joint applications, for community groups and organisations to undertake projects related to truth, healing and reconciling histories of people with lived experience of institutional child abuse, across Queensland communities.

Funded activities will:

  • acknowledge and raise awareness of institutional child abuse and its impact
  • support people with lived experience to speak out and share their stories in a way that is safe, supported, and promotes better understanding by the broader community and institutions
  • are of importance to people with lived experience such as events and reunions
  • develop memorials and monuments that are of significance to those with a lived experience
  • undertake research in the area of institutional child abuse
