A reminder: the Australian Dental Health Foundation (ADHF) and the Mars Wrigley Foundation Community Service Grants program is still open for submissions.
This year, the Grants program will award US$82,000 in funds to as many as 13 volunteer organisations to undertake projects to help bridge the gap in access to oral care services and education across Australia.
Now in its ninth year, the Community Service Grants program encourages volunteer dentists and dental students to provide oral health community services and education to high-risk populations in Australia.
Since 2011, it has awarded more than half a million dollars in grant funding to volunteer dentists and dental students to provide free-of-charge treatments and robust oral health education to patients from some of Australia’s most remote and disadvantaged communities.
These volunteers have provided much-needed treatment and educational services to some of Australia’s most vulnerable communities including Indigenous and homeless people, domestic violence victims, the disabled, low income earners, refugees, the elderly and those living in rural Australia.
For the full application criteria and to apply for the Community Service Grants, visit the ADHF website and fill out an application. You have until 7 June 2019.
