The Regina Brindle Grant Program aims to honour the significant contributions that Regina Brindle made to the promotion of consumer voices in the alcohol and other drug (AOD) and mental health and wellbeing (MHW) sectors in Victoria, and to establishing practices that support their participation in civil society.


Grants are awarded to support projects designed by and for Victorian consumers.

Each year, the Regina Brindle Grant Program awards grants of up to $5,000 to individuals or small groups who are past or present consumers, and who have lived and living experience of AOD and mental health challenges. Family members, partners and supporters are also eligible to apply.
