Allied Health Reconnection Grants Open

The Allied Health Reconnection Grants seek to enhance opportunities for clinicians to work together in a multidisciplinary patient-centred approach. With COVID-19 disrupting access to care for many patients, the grants aim to encourage primary care Allied Health providers to implement ideas to re-engage or enhance care whilst promoting sector collaboration.

With a minimum of $20,000 ex gst and maximum of $50,000 ex gst available, the grants can be used for activities that demonstrate an integrated innovative approach to patient-centred allied health care which involves working with at least one other organisation/s and with a mix of health or social service providers (this may be General Practitioners, Community Groups, or other Allied Health providers with different professions to that of the lead grant applicant).

Initiatives that focus on reconnecting patients to care due to COVID-19 will be prioritised.

Prevention and early intervention activities which aim to demonstrate increased value of allied health care are highly sought after.  

Examples of eligible activities addressing COVID-19 reconnection may include:

  • Implementation of a new or enhanced model of care aiming to improve patients’ health or reconnect patients into health care by working across different organisations and/or sectors (health, housing, financial support, education)
  • Team based long COVID or rehabilitation group programs
  • Implementing digital health models of care that add to the evidence base of data and data quality related to the value of allied health, multi-disciplinary team (MDT) care or integrated care
  • Establishing social prescribing and self-management schemes at the neighbourhood level
  • Place-based solutions to care addressing rural health or other priority population group’s needs, or
  • Workforce activities aiming to attract and sustain health care workers in the community.
