National Community Grants

Through the generous support of our partnership with Clipsal by Schneider Electric, 50c from every Clipsal smoke alarm sold is donated to the Julian Burton Burns Trust to provide funding for projects to support the burns community in providing world class burns prevention, care and support. Grants are open to professional bodies that provide care or support programs for burn survivors and their families or that facilitate burns prevention activities. 

Grants are competitive and applicants must demonstrate a proven need for the activity and a preparedness for collaboration and sharing of resources with other aligned agencies across Australia and New Zealand. 

Round 2 of the 2017 National Community Grants open at 9:00am on Monday 3 July and close at 5:00pm on Friday 1st September. For any queries please contact Beck at beck@burnstrust.com.au or call 08 7220 2197.

FIRST AID QUICK GUIDE
In an emergency call 000
1. REMOVE
Remove any clothing and jewellery from the affected area to allow effective cooling of the burn.
2. COOL
Cool the burn under cool running water for 20 minutes - this will stop the burning process and also help ease the pain.
3. COVER
Cover the burn with a clean lint free cloth or if it is a large area, cover loosely with cling wrap to lessen the chance of infection.
4. SEEK
Seek medical advice if the burn is larger than a 20 cent piece or on the face, hands, feet or groin area.
