The Records Access Documentation (RAD) Grants offer financial support for projects that will help Care Leavers and relevant Support Services find and access records created by non-government past providers of “care” from 1920 to 1989.

Grants of up to $15,000 will be made to eligible not for-profit organisations. Successful organisations will be funded for projects that:

  • Improve access to records created between 1920 and 1989 that are of importance to Care Leavers
  • Improve the documentation and management of records which have a high impact on living Care Leavers
  • Give value for money, are feasible and achievable (as evidenced in the budget and project plan provided in the application)

The RAD grants are made possible by funding from the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
