Volunteer Grants aim to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers. The grants provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers. The grants form part of the Government’s work to support volunteers, as well as to encourage and increase participation in volunteering.
Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 are available to help community organisations buy equipment such as laptops, pay fuel costs, or assist with volunteer training costs.
The Families and Communities Program aims to strengthen relationships, support families, improve the well-being of children and young people, reduce the cost of family breakdown and strengthen families and communities.
The objectives of Volunteer Grants are to:
o help community organisations to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers
o help community organisations to support the inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering
o encourage, support and increase participation in volunteering.
The Volunteer Grants program intends to strengthen communities by increasing participation in volunteering.
