Australian Government “Be Connected” Capacity Building grants

Status: Ongoing

Region: Australia wide


The Capacity Building grant is an opportunity for community organisations to run a train-the-trainer program to support and develop new digital mentors.

Digital mentors help people to feel confident and safe online. They support communities to learn digital skills. They are at the heart of community-led digital inclusion programs.

The Capacity Building program is a train-the-trainer initiative to support and develop digital mentors in local communities across Australia. Capacity Builders work with Good Things Foundation to inspire skilled, passionate and friendly digital mentors to help more older people be connected. The grant and training program is created by Good Things Foundation Australia and available to community organisations in Australia through the Be Connected program.

Organisations successful in being accepted into this round of the program will receive $50,000 in grant funding, and a specialist pack of training resources ready to deliver. Find out more.
