Playgroup Grants

PLEASE NOTE: Playgroup WA's Lotterywest grants are currently ON HOLD and not accepting new applications at this time, as all funds have been allocated.

However, please watch this space and subscribe to our newsletters for updates, as we hope to offer this again soon. Information on this grant program is below.

Playgroup WA, with the support of a grant from the WA Government through Lotterywest, has provided financial support to community playgroups for several years.

Under the grant, individual community playgroups were able to apply for financial support of between $500 - $15,000 directly through Playgroup WA, to fund the purchase of toys, education resources and other equipment.

All playgroups are encouraged to apply and you don't need to be a Playgroup WA member to be eligible.

What we are able to support

We were able to support the purchase of equipment, education resources, portable furniture, toys and associated items. Some ideas include whitegoods, storage, outdoor play equipment. musical instruments and play mats. Other ideas welcome.

Each application is considered on its own merits and there are a few conditions that need to be satisfied to progress the application:

  • Grants must support not for profit playgroups/organisations and benefit the WA community
  • The grant request must be directly related to your playgroup/organisation's purpose.
  • Applications are open to Playgroup WA members and non members. If you're not a playgroup WA member we will require some additional information around longevity and membership of your playgroup/organisation.

There were some things we are unable to support including activities and assets that are core venue owner responsibilities.
