Volunteer Grants 2011 recognises the valuable work of Australia's volunteers and is part of the Government's ongoing commitment to support volunteers, assist disadvantaged communities and encourage social inclusion, particularly among vulnerable people within our society. Funding is available to eligible not-for-profit community organisations to help their volunteers and encourage volunteering.
Volunteer Grants 2011 provides funding to purchase small equipment items to assist volunteers and contribute towards reimbursement of fuel costs, transport costs incurred by volunteers with disability who are unable to drive, training courses and background screening checks for volunteers.
