Volunteers and their organisations in the South West will receive funding as part of the Federal Government’s current round of Volunteer Grants. These grants support the crucial role that volunteers play within our community as the South West recovers from the pandemic.
Federal Member for Forrest Nola Marino MP today announced funding for eighteen community organisations in the South West.
“We all see the impact of our volunteers in the South West, how hard they work and how their efforts continue to support and strengthen our community.
“I know that each group will make great use of the funding and we often see how relatively small amounts of funding, with the multiplier effect, have a great impact on local communities.”
The 2021 Volunteer Grants provide organisations with grants of $1,000 to $5,000 to help purchase equipment, training and background screening checks for their volunteers.
Volunteers are integral to many Australian organisations, with more than 8.7 million volunteers across the country giving their time freely to support their communities.
