Injury Matters delivers two Stay On Your Feet® Move Improve Remove campaigns each year, focusing on modifiable risk factors for falls under the Move Your Body, Improve Your Health and Remove Hazards messages. For each campaign, Move Improve Remove grants of up to $5,000 (plus GST) are available, up to a total of $15,000 (plus GST) per round.
The Move Improve Remove grants program provides groups and organisations with the opportunity to deliver falls prevention programs targeting older adults within their community.
The capacity building nature of the Move Improve Remove grant program allows Injury Matters to support groups and foster skills among applicants through grant coaching. Coaching may include identifying project need, project planning, evaluation or how to increase project sustainability. The grant program also contributes to raising awareness among community members of campaign-focused falls prevention strategies.
Injury Matters provides Move Improve Remove grants with funding from the Western Australian Department of Health.
Injury Matters will award up to $5,000 (plus GST) per grant for eligible organisations and community groups to deliver falls prevention projects within their community.

Why apply for a grant?
The Move Improve Remove grants program provides groups and organisations with the opportunity to deliver falls prevention programs within their community. Grant-funded programs may be appropriate for filling a gap in services, increasing access to services or improving falls prevention systems. Using grant funding to pilot a new program allows applicants to demonstrate the viability and effectiveness of a program, which can assist with obtaining ongoing funding.
The Stay On Your Feet® grants program process consists of the submission of a Grant Application, which is then assessed by an external panel of health professionals who select successful grant recipients.
