Specialist medical lender Credabl has launched Helping Hand Grants to support small and medium sized businesses in the medical industry, including veterinary practices. Applications are now open for five available grants, each including a $5000 cash incentive and a range of marketing support designed to help promote the business in their local area and educate on ways to use digital and social media to build their brand.
Stafford Hamilton, CEO of Credabl, endorsed the launch of the Helping Hand Grants as a way to shine a light on hardworking healthcare practices right across Australia.
“At Credabl, we have seen firsthand how hard this year has been on medical practices emotionally and financially,” Hamilton said.
“The Helping Hand Grants enable us to support five businesses whilst also acknowledging the challenges many practices are currently facing—from patient retention and community engagement to financial hardship.”
Businesses apply by submitting a photograph or video and a maximum of 100 words as to why they should be awarded a Helping Hand Grant. A panel of judges made up of senior leaders at Credabl and three independent leaders from the medical, dental and veterinary industries will work through all of the applications and award five grants to businesses across Australia. The recipients will be announced in March 2021.
“We’re humbled by the applications we’ve already had and hope they continue to come in thick and fast,” Hamilton said.
“We want to retell some of these stories over the holiday period and really share the wonderful hard work and community spirit we’ve witnessed.”
Medical, dental and veterinary businesses can apply for a Helping Hand Grant via the dedicated program page and patients/clients can nominate their local doctor, dentist or vet by visiting the nomination page.
