We partner with charities and organisations who operate in Queensland and Papua New Guinea that tackle social issues to achieve life-changing outcomes for people in need. Our focus is on ensuring Queensland’s most at-risk young people have the outcomes they need to thrive in adult life.
Our current negotiations will exhaust our allocation this financial year, therefore we are not exploring any additional strategic partnership opportunities at this time. In the meantime, please scroll down to find out more about our Theory of Change.
We are interested in supporting multi-year philanthropic partnerships and impact investments for initiatives that are strongly supported by evidence and whose impact can be measured, to deliver clear outcomes for at-risk young people.
Our partnering approach embraces program delivery, capability building, impact measurement, influencing systemic change and scaling impact. Watch our whiteboard video.

We also offer capability-building support as we understand that organisations may need help at different stages and for different reasons. This may mean providing assistance to an organisation to get them to the next stage or to position their organisation for future success. Examples of capability-building grants:
Funding to establish a Theory of Change which clearly identifies the problem you are trying to help address, how your organisation plans to help address that problem, and what outcomes it hopes to achieve.
Funding to collate evidence to support your Theory of Change – this can include both quantitative and qualitative evidence that your organisation has collected through its current programs and/or evidence collected by other organisations from similar programs and initiatives.
Funding to establish a proposed framework to measure the outcomes and impact of your program or initiative.
Fund a specialist to develop an organisation’s long-term strategy, business plan and governance program to provide a clear path forward into the future.
Funding to procure additional resources to facilitate growth and expansion within the organisation.
You may seek funding to run an evidenced-based start-up or pilot program.
We support registered charitable organisations or businesses that operate in either Queensland or Papua New Guinea to tackle social problems. You must be able to demonstrate that your program or initiative is able to assist Hand Heart Pocket to make progress against its ‘Theory of Change’ to improve outcomes for youth at risk or is in support of Hand Heart Pocket’s current strategy.
