About the Disability Self Help Grants Program

The Victorian Government recognises the important role that self-help groups play in supporting people with disability to live satisfying everyday lives.

The Disability Self Help Grants Program provides grants to Victorian disability self-help groups. The grants give financial help to meet costs to provide social, emotional and practical support to their members.

Self-help groups are self-managed groups that:

  • bring people together who deal with similar experiences and barriers through a peer support network
  • support their members to share insights and information gained through personal and lived experience
  • support people to:
    • become active members of their community
    • take control of their own situation or circumstance
    • raise awareness in the broader community about the experiences of people with disability and their carers.

Grants help strengthen the operation of the self-help groups, including:

  • administration costs
  • communications
  • activities.

The Office for Disability at the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing administers the Disability Self Help Grants Program.
