The Australian Government's Department of Veterans' Affairs SYV grants support the development of well researched and tailored services for the younger veterans' community, with a particular focus on services supporting those at risk of experiencing poor mental health. This may include social inclusion and connectedness activities for younger veterans and their families, mentoring or other support for veterans to assist with their transition to civilian life and employment, or online activities that address stigma and raise awareness of mental health issues faced by younger veterans.
SYV is open to Ex-Service Organisations (ESOs) and community organisations that work with ESOs to provide support and services to younger veterans.
Interested applicants can apply for a grant of up to $50,000 for local, community-based projects and activities. A small number of large grants of up to $150,000 will also be available for projects that deliver wellbeing support services and activities of broad scale benefit to the younger veteran community.
Applications close: 5 February 2021.
