Community Waikato administers a small fund specifically for training that will contribute to community based mental health services. There is no set application time. Usually two grants are made from this fund per year.
The training involved must satisfy all or some of the following criteria. It should:
- Benefit clients
- Enable recipients to train others
- Support particular needs of minority groups
- Assist recipients on a low or no income
Grants are normally made for course costs but in exceptional cases might also cover travel and accommodation costs.
Applications should be in writing detailing information on the proposed training. They should also show how recipients and training meet the criteria outlined. Please also include the name and contact details of one referee.
The application should be addressed and forwarded to Community Mental Health Training Fund Applications, attention Sally Ridley, Community Waikato, P O Box 1367, Hamilton.
