Community Partnerships Program Commencing April 2019

Expressions of interest are open. By 5 May 2019, tell us how up to $300,000 over three years will help you make a tangible and lasting positive difference to WA health.

We've created the HBF Community Partnerships Program to help organisations and charities in our community improve the health of West Australians.

Brief background

For 78 years, generations of Western Australians have turned to us to insure their health. We are the State's largest health insurer, but we're also determined to be a force for good in the wider community.

Our goal

Improving health in our community can take many forms and we want to ensure that our Community Partnerships Program makes a tangible, measurable difference in an area of need in our community.

How our program works

Learn how our Community Partnerships Program application process works
  1. Express your interest

    Complete a short online form outlining who you are, a summary of your initiative and how your cause aligns with HBF.
  2. Make the shortlist

    We will let you know, either way, if you have been shortlisted.  If you are, you will then complete a more detailed online application form.  We will then ask a final selection of applicants to present to us in-person.
  3. Partnership announced

    After reviewing all applications, one successful organisation will be awarded a three year partnership with us, with up to $300,000 funding.
