Community Grants Program

The Sponsorship and Grants program enables the Town to collaborate with local groups, organisations, individuals and local business to deliver initiatives that increase social cohesion, promote inclusion, and deliver economic and environmental benefits.

The Town’s Community Grant Program supports community projects, programs, and events that align with the Town’s Strategic objectives with funding of up to $2,000.

Applications will remain open until the predetermined funding pool is exhausted.

Community Grants Program Application

Community Insurance

Insurance may be provided to eligible community groups (excluding sporting clubs) under the Town's Community Insurance Program. Whilst insurance is primarily for established community groups located in the Town, consideration will also be given to community groups based outside of the Town that significantly contribute to the Town of Bassendean community and proposed community groups unable to deliver community-facing initiatives due to the costs of insurance.

Other eligibility requirements include:

  • Must have an annual turnover of less than $100,000
  • Must not be registered sole traders or businesses
  • Must not be able to access insurance through an affiliate association or state/national body

New groups are considered when the policy is renewed each year. Please register your interest to be considered.
