Bursaries & Subsidies

In order to ensure rich, robust and inclusive dialogue it is imperative that people with lived experience of the issues being discussed attend and participate fully  in all ACOSS events.

It is also important that small community sector organisations, for whom registration costs may be prohibitive, are represented.

With this in mind, ACOSS works with valued partners to establish a bursary and subsidy program for all events.

Applications are open for the following bursaries.
