The Community Grants Hub, on behalf of the Department of Social Services (DSS), invited organisations and individuals/authorised signatories representing volunteer based community groups to apply for Volunteer Grants 2016 funding.

These grants aim to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers. They provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers. They are part of the Government’s work to support the volunteers who help disadvantaged Australian communities and encourage inclusion of vulnerable people in community life.

The funding will help volunteers to do their important work, and the grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 each will allow organisations to buy much needed equipment, such as computers, or help with training volunteers, fuel costs or undertaking background security checks.
