How do we get a McGrath Breast Care Nurse in our region?
The McGrath Foundation provides funding for McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia. Each McGrath Breast Care Nurse is funded for a minimum of three years.
Each application will be considered on its merits. Please consider the basic criteria before developing an application for funding, including:
- Funding is only available for the employment of specialist breast care nurses
- Top-up funding for existing positions is not generally available
- Rural and regional areas will be given priority status
A proposal can be submitted to the McGrath Foundation at any time and should consider the criteria outlined above. Apart from exceptional circumstances all proposals will be reviewed semi-annually and all applications will remain active for each review process.
If you would like to apply for funding, please complete the application form and return to
