2023-24 Volunteer Grants
Expressions of Interest (EOI) are now closed for the 2023-24 Volunteer Grants.
Grants of between $1,000 - $5,000 are available for not-for-profit community organisations consisting of a minimum of 40% volunteers to make the work of their volunteers easier, safer and more enjoyable. The intended outcome of this grant opportunity is to strengthen community functioning by supporting and increasing participation in volunteering.
This funding is to be used for projects such as:
- purchasing eligible small equipment items for use by volunteers
- contributing to volunteers’ fuel costs, during the course of their volunteer work
- contributing to transport costs for volunteers with disability who are unable to drive
- assisting with the cost of training courses for volunteers
- undertaking background screening checks for volunteers
- conducting activities to promote awareness of, and increase participation in, volunteering opportunities
- adapting practises to support volunteers’ safety.
If you have applied, EOIs are now being considered by a Community Committee and a shortlist of applicants will be nominated to apply. Nominees will soon receive an invitation from the Department of Social Services to apply for this grant opportunity.
