The National Centre’s upcoming grant rounds
The National Centre for Action on Child Sexual Abuse (National Centre) will open applications for its first competitive research grants round later in October 2022.
At that time, we will be looking for research projects that support our vision of a community in which children are safe, and victims and survivors of child sexual abuse across the lifespan are supported to heal and recover. Evidence-based knowledge that is ready to be used to help strengthen practice with victims and survivors plays a key role in achieving this vision of the National Centre.
We will be funding a range of small and large projects. The National Centre has adopted a broad definition of research to include all systematic investigations undertaken to gain knowledge and understanding, including evaluations and quality improvement activities.
This grants round will be open to any Australian organisation with the capacity to undertake research, including services, and can be led by researchers or practitioners. This grants round will meet the criteria for Category 1 grants.

Grants will be awarded on merit, with applications peer assessed by independent multi-disciplinary peer assessment panels. If you would like to be a peer assessor for the National Centre, we are looking for researchers, policymakers, practitioners or service managers, and people with lived or living experience of child sexual abuse.
