Seed funding for running Menswatch Peer Support Training programs is generated from fundraising activities, sponsorship and grants. Seed funding is only available to community groups and organisations that would not otherwise have the capacity to fund the full cost of a program.

Seed funding is only available to community groups and organisations that have an identified need in their community. Experience has shown that, when a community takes ownership of the program it is much more successful.

The cost of a Menswatch Peer Support Training program depends on the geographic location of the community in which it is to be run. The cost is usually between $5000 and $6,500 (which is mostly dependent on travel time, and travel costs for the Educator; intra-state and regional travel is often more expensive than interstate travel).

To obtain an estimate of the cost of running a program in your area please contact our Events Manager:

Anthony Smith




The maximum amount of seed funding granted is usually $2,500

* Host organisations are asked to provide their own venue and catering.

The program Educator, and his accommodation and travel, are arranged by our Event Manager, with costs being covered within the program estimate provided by the Event Manager.
