July 25, 2022

Round One of the ICMEC Australia Child Protection Fund is now open for applications! 

We are offering grants or impact investments of between $50,000 and $500,000 to compelling initiatives that can deliver technology and/or data approaches to increase the detection, reporting, and prosecution of child sexual exploitation (CSE). 

Our Fund will also partner our monetary support with capability assistance to help successful grantees thrive – offering opportunities for mentorship, networks, connections and collaboration. Together, we can all work to reduce and prevent the scourge of CSE. 

In case you missed our online introduction to the Fund on 19 July, you can find the slides presented here

The criteria for applications are included on the ICMEC Australia website. We take a pragmatic and respectful approach to funding. If you would like to speak with someone about your idea before writing an application, please provide a 1 – 2 page (max) summary to our Head of Impact, Tiphanie Au at

Applications close on 19 September 2022. Please send your application to:
