Real Needs Community Grants



Real Needs is a community grants program of Real Insurance. It encourages Not-For-Profit organizations working with children to apply for charitable funding, which will enable them to further aid youth in need.



Real Needs aims to make a positive difference by providing charities with grants that assist them to manage programs that help children in need across Australia, and make a real difference to the community by addressing the growing issues faced by Australia’s youth.

The Real Needs program addresses this issue by providing grants to community organisations that work with disadvantaged or under privileged children.



The Real Needs Program is run on a monthly basis, with grants allocated in values of $5,000, $10,000 and $20,000.
