Our sponsorship program is continuing despite the pandemic. Given the physical distancing measures in place, we understand some events have been postponed and others are likely to move to digital delivery methods. Organisations seeking sponsorship in the next round are advised to think strategically about how any proposed events could be delivered.
We invite quarterly sponsorship applications up to $10,000 to support achievement of better mental health outcomes for Queenslanders.
Sponsorship enables the Commission to support community awareness events, enhance knowledge sharing and collaboration. We support a range of events, conferences and other activities after considering how each application meets the assessment criteria.
We are currently seeking to support events, conferences and activities that align with the Shifting minds priorities of:
- providing the best start in life
- suicide prevention
- alcohol and other drugs
- wellbeing and prevention
- social and emotional wellbeing.
Applications for financial sponsorship are assessed against assessment criteria four times a year, with rounds closing on 28 February, 31 May, 31 August and 30 November.
We assess sponsorship applications according to our sponsorship guideline and publish all approved sponsorships in our sponsorship register.
Our sponsorship guideline is consistent with the Queensland Government sponsorship policy, and seeks to ensure that all sponsorship requests are considered using an open, transparent, fair and equitable process.
Our sponsorship guideline outlines the purpose, eligibility, evaluation process, assessment criteria, and funding, monitoring and review requirements.
