Each year SHARE gives grants to UnitingCare agencies and other community organisations throughout Victoria and Tasmania. These grants help provide emergency relief, meals programs, homelessness services, child and family support, youth and disability services, alcohol and drug rehabilitation, supported accommodation projects and aged care services.
Summary of Purpose
The SHARE grants program distributes funds annually to address urgent human need, and to enhance the quality and scope of community support services to disadvantaged or vulnerable Victorians and Tasmanians.
SHARE gives the greatest priority to proposals that directly address urgent human need.

i) That pioneer new or innovative work in small programs including those without start-up resources.
ii) That meet newly emerging needs.

ii) Purchase of property or land
Assistance is only available to those organisations able to offer tax deductibility for donations. Grants are not paid via auspicing agencies for the benefit of third party organisations.
