These grants are available to research projects into the health and wellbeing of veterans, emergency service personnel and their families incorporating issues such as Post Traumatic Stress.

The following grant is also available to researchers who work at a Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN) site:

  • The Prabha Seshadri Grant

This research project can be a medical project with a broader veteran’s support aspect or a research project directly on the health and wellbeing of veterans, emergency service first responders and their families incorporating issues such as Post Traumatic Stress.

The Road Home is a charitable affiliate of The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF), raising awareness and funds to support health and wellbeing research and programs into conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress for the nation’s veterans, emergency service personnel and their families.

“We’re extremely thankful to our supporters for enabling us to announce our largest grant round for The Road Home to date,” said THRF CEO Paul Flynn.

“We look forward to receiving applications from talented researchers in this field who have a commitment to improving the lives of those who put themselves in harm’s way and serve to protect us.”
