Healthy Living NT recognises that the development of diabetes at a young age presents additional challenges and difficulties to both the child/youth and their family.

If you have not received an acknowledgement within 5 working days, please follow up by phone to 89 278 488.
Letters of support from your doctor, other health care professional or supporting organisation for applications such as attendance at a diabetes camp are not mandatory but can strengthen your application.
The Fellowship Board of Governors meets twice a year to consider applications. Applications should be submitted by no later than 31 May and/or 30 November respectively to be considered in the current funding round.
You will generally be notified of the outcome of the application within 6 weeks of the closing date.
The Fellowship does not normally fund 100% of the costs involved in an activity. It is therefore important that you identify all the costs associated with your proposal in your application.
The Fellowship does not means test its support however preference will be given to lower income families or recipients with defined high needs.
Once Fellowship support is approved, a formal Fellowship Agreement will be offered.
Funding is generally only made available on the production of receipts confirming payment for the approved activity. Payment will be made by EFT to the recipient’s/carer’s bank account or where direct payment to a supplier is made on behalf of an applicant, payment will be made directly to the supplier’s bank account.
If pre-payment is not possible for some families, then the Fellowship may consider providing funding in advance. If pre-payment is required it is important to note this in your application.
No formal acquittal of funding is required when funding is by reimbursement of expenses. However, where funding is advanced to a recipient, this must be acquitted by way of receipts.
In either case, the Fellowship would like to know about the benefit and value of the funded activity. The Fellowship would like a short report on the activity within two (2) months of its completion. Photos are also welcome.
If the funding cannot be used or the activity is not able to be undertaken as proposed, Healthy Living NT should be advised at the earliest opportunity, including the reasons why it was not possible to undertake the activity as proposed.
The Fellowship will consider whether to cancel the Fellowship approval or to allow it to continue on a revised schedule.
The information requested in the application form is sought by Healthy Living NT for the purpose of assessing Youth Support Fellowship applications. Your application will not be able to be processed if you do not provide this information.
Personal information of Youth Support Fellowship recipients will be de-identified (anonymous) in any public reporting about the Fellowship or its activities.
