The Telstra Foundation will provide $1.8 million over three years in new grants to help isolated children and young people across Australia have a better quality of life.

The grants will help socially and geographically isolated children by funding projects to build social connections and support networks, and improve access to services such as education and healthcare.

Telstra Foundation Chairman, Herb Elliott says it is well established that isolation and economic disadvantage can have a negative impact on the health and well-being of children and young people.

He says the Foundation wants to help kids have the best opportunities in life. Giving them access to greater support and services will help give them the head start they need.

The Telstra Foundation is offering grants from $75,000 per year to support community-based organisations implement their ideas to build social connection, and improve the health and well-being of children.

The new Social Innovation Grants will be provided over three years and will fund up to seven projects across the country. The grants are part of the Telstra Foundation’s Community Development Fund.

Elliott says the Foundations is looking for projects that will make a lasting and positive difference to the lives of children and young people.

Projects designed to develop and transfer new skills, as well as creatively use information and communication technologies to build social connections will be given priority.

Further information on the Telstra Foundation’s Social Innovation Grants is available at www.telstrafoundation.com.

Applications open on February 1 and close on April 20, 2007. Successful grant applications will be announced July.
