This is a new grant category that identifies the needs of young adults as they transition into adulthood.

This can be challenging for any young adult and this grant is being offered to all young adults who qualify as a WHT beneficiary aged from 17 to 22 years old.

As young adults start to identify their goals and dreams for the future, the Wilson Home Trust Young Adults grant aims to support their future aspirations and assist them through this challenging time. Below is a list of the type of support that can be applied for: (this is not an exclusive list)

  • Tertiary Study

  • Accommodation – moving out of the family home to an apartment
  • Travel
  • Towards a vehicle including modifications and/or driving lessons
  • Equipment including communication devices
  • Mental wellbeing

The grant is capped at $3,000 plus GST ($3,450.00 including GST).  Please note that we will not accept any retrospective applications (items / services that have already been purchased and paid for).
