Ansvar said the program provides a range of grants to organisations supporting Australian youth through programs that fall under two categories – Empowerment and Education, and Outreach and Support.

Since the grants were first awarded in 1994, Ansvar said it had contributed over $10 million to education and life skill programs reaching thousands of young people across Australia.

“Year after year we are amazed by the calibre of organisations that apply for the Ansvar CEP Grants. As funding becomes more and more difficult for these deserving programs, it is especially gratifying for everyone at Ansvar to be able to contribute in making a difference to the lives of so many young Australians,” CEO Ansvar Insurance Warren Hutcheon said.

“We encourage every organisation across Australia who meets the selection criteria to apply for a CEP Grant. We look forward to receiving the applications and helping these programs enrich the lives of the young people they support.”

Some of the 2016 CEP Grant recipients included Australian Refugee Volunteers, Down Syndrome Victoria, Top Blokes Foundation, The Reach Foundation and Courage to Care.

“With the help of the grants, all of the programs were able to offer life changing programs to a wide range of deserving recipients across Australia,” Hutcheon said.

Applications for the Ansvar CEP Grants open on Thursday 1 September and will close at 5pm, Friday 14 October 2016.  

Ansvar will notify all organisations of the outcome of their application on or before Friday 31 March 2017. To apply online or to find out more, visit here. The CEP Grants Team can also be reached via email at CEPGrants@ansvar.com.au or by calling 1300 650 540.
