Healthier Workplace WA's Small Business Kick-Start Grants are back! 

We are offering up to ten $1000 grants to support West Australian small businesses develop and implement a workplace health and wellbeing program.

Workplaces that provide supportive environments which allow people to be physically active, quit smoking, reduce alcohol consumption and improve their nutrition see significant benefits for their staff and business. 

Who can apply?

Small businesses in Western Australia with 50 or less staff based on current “headcount”, rather than a measure of full-time equivalent persons.

How much can I apply for?

Eligible businesses can apply for up to $1000. However, smaller grant requests are invited. Each application will be assessed on a case by case basis and successful applicants may not be granted the full amount requested.

Businesses that self-fund a component of their project will be looked upon favourably. For example, apply for funding (up to $1000) and contribute workplace funds to increase the number of strategies implemented.

What can my workplace purchase with this money?

Successful businesses can use their grant to purchase items such as bike racks, lockers, changing room items, pool bikes, smart riders, vehicle refrigerators, sit-stand work desk, education sessions, healthy activities and fruit boxes to support healthy environments and behaviours in the workplace. Visit the Healthier Workplace WA website for further examples.
