Muscular Dystrophy WA is committed to empowering the lives of our community by providing you with the practical help you need now. One of the ways in which we aim to facilitate this is through the Empower Fund Grants.

Now, through an application process you can apply for financial support to help you live your life to its fullest. Or, if you are experiencing some hardship, we also have some funds to help out with that too.

You can apply for a grant for money towards an item that cannot ordinarily be fully funded or supplied via other agencies (including the NDIS). It allows members of our community to enjoy life experiences that you wouldn’t have otherwise been able to.

Think: a sports wheelchair, a development course for something you’re passionate about (like photography), money towards hoist hire costs on a holiday or help with travel expenses. These are they types of things we will consider for funding.

To apply for assistance, you must be able to demonstrate a genuine need and explain how the assistance requested will meet this need. 

Please make sure you read the Guidelines for Applicants first, so you have an understanding of restrictions and the process, then download the Application Form to apply for a grant.

Applications for our next round of grants closes on July 27.

Please don’t hesitate to contact empower@mdwa.org.au for any grant related queries you may have and we will get back to you as soon as practicable.
