Funding and discrimination
I have been filling in funding applications tonight and discovered on the forms (different organisations) that you cannot ask for funding for males.
They ask you (if not exactly then similar wording)
Please select up to 3 sectors form the list below that you believe will most benefit from services your organisation will provide as a reuslt of the grant:
People with disabilities
Family Violence Prevention
This happens to ALL groups. If you work with addiction I guess you will go for disability and women and unemployed. If you are in Anger Management I guess you would do similar but also go for Family Violence Prevention.
And if you are us then you will go for WOMEN, family and refugees. But that doesn’t help what we want to do for fathers.
On other forms you have the extra choices of YOUTH and CHILDREN.
But none of the forms have the sector MALES. Which means if you are wanting to do something in the community for males over 17 you are out of luck.
That is definate discrimination.
