Playgroup WA, with the support of a grant from the WA Government through Lotterywest, was providing financial support to community playgroups.

We are currently not able to accept any new registrations or applications at this time as we have now committed all of the funds available for this financial year.

We are hopeful of being able to offer a new round of Lotterywest grants in the 2021/22 financial year and will update our information as soon as we have more details about the availability of future grants. 

If you have already submitted a Registration of Interest and/or application and would like further information please contact us at or phone 1800 171 882.

Under the grant, individual community playgroups were able to apply for financial support of between $500 - $15,000 directly through Playgroup WA, to fund the purchase of toys, education resources and other equipment.

All playgroups were encouraged to apply and didn't need to be a Playgroup WA member to be eligible.

What we were able to support

We were able to support the purchase of equipment, education resources, portable furniture, toys and associated items. Some ideas include whitegoods, storage, outdoor play equipment. musical instruments and play mats. Other ideas welcome.

Each application was considered on its own merits and there were a few conditions that needed to be satisfied to progress the application:

  • Grants must support not for profit playgroups/organisations and benefit the WA community
  • The grant request must be directly related to your playgroup/organisation's purpose.
  • Applications are open to Playgroup WA members and non members. If you're not a playgroup WA member we will require some additional information around longevity and membership of your playgroup/organisation.

There were some things we were unable to support including activities and assets that are core venue owner responsibilities.

As we have committed all of the available funds for this financial year, registrations are currently closed. If you've already submitted a registration or application and would like further information please contact us at or phone 1800 171 882.
