Community Grants 2022-23

South Brissie state schools kids helper grants - closed for the 22/23 year as budget has run out

State schools should be genuinely free. But right now local parents are having to fork out thousands of dollars each year on school fees, textbooks, excursions and laptops.

For some parents that’s not much money, but others it can represent a massive dent out of their family budget. On a broader level I’ll keep fighting for our state schools to be fully-funded, and for all state school service fees, excursion costs and textbook costs to be abolished and replaced with extra government funding.

But in the meantime, my office is offering grants of up to $200 to local South Brissie state school kids, whose parents or carers need a little bit of extra help to cover an upcoming excursion or new uniform set.


The grant is open to any kid who lives in the South Brisbane electorate and who is attending a local state school: Dutton Park State School, West End State School, East Brisbane State School, Buranda State School, Brisbane State High, Brisbane South State Secondary College & Narbethong State Special School 

How to apply

Get in touch with my office on 3724 9100 or [email protected] and let us know:

  • Your name, address and best contact number
  • Your kids name and what school they go to
  • A rough idea of what it'll be helping them with, e.g. a school excursion, a new uniform, money towards a new laptop

Sadly my office budget isn't huge so these grants my run out before the end of financial year depending on interest and need in the community. I'll update this page when this has happened.


Other grants

My office budget is limited but if there is something else you or your community group would like funding for, please get in touch on 3724 9100 or [email protected] and we'll see if we can help!
