Strengthening Early Years

The Strengthening Early Years National Open Grant Round is a partnership between Paul Ramsay Foundation and Australian Communities Foundation. The Strengthening Early Years Program by the Paul Ramsay Foundation aims to support families and children to ensure that every child has the opportunity to thrive upon school entry. In particular, we recognise the critical importance of the developmental period between conception and age two. Equally, we need to also ensure that parents are well supported to flourish during the early years of their child’s life. To do this, Paul Ramsay Foundation seeks to source, seed and support ‘promising programs’ that are working with families with children aged prenatal to two years old. One mechanism for achieving this is through the National Open Grant Round described in these guidelines. One of the primary objectives of this nationwide open grant round is to extend PRF’s reach into communities with which the Foundation does not have a long history of partnering. Recipient organisations must be Australian charities registered with the ACNC.
