Dream Fund Wellness Support Bursary

Are you on a healing journey but is there a financial barrier getting in your way? The Wellness Support Bursary can provide youth in and from care with up to $1,000 to go towards an accredited/registered wellness service or program. With the Wellness Support Bursary, you can access things like counselling, talk or art therapy, traditional healing supports, physiotherapy, yoga and more. If you need money for something you don’t see listed here, contact us and we will do what we can to help!

The Fed will distribute 15 bursaries as part of this one-time opportunity. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis, and will only be considered after the submission of a completed application form that meets all requirements for the Wellness Support Bursary.

NOTE: This bursary will be sent directly to the program, resource, or support and will not be issued to the young person. Bursary money can take up to 6 weeks to reach the designated receiver.
