Volunteer Grants 2015 is now open for applications!
Grants of between $1 000 and $5 000 are available for not-for-profit community organisations to support their volunteers in practical ways such as the purchasing of equipment items or the reimbursement for the cost of fuel, training and background checks.
“There are many groups and individuals on the Southside who make an extraordinary contribution to our community by volunteering their time in a range of organisations and services,” said Graham Perrett MP, Federal Member for Moreton.
“Volunteers play a critical role in helping shape our community and strengthen the fabric of society. Volunteers freely give their time and skills in supporting others and these grants helps small community organisations assist their volunteers by making their volunteering easier and more enjoyable,” said Mr Perrett.
Further information about Volunteer Grants 2015 is available by contacting the Moreton electorate office on 3344 2622 or visiting www.dss.gov.au/grants.
