The Australian Government through the Department of Social Services has finalised the Volunteer Grants 2015 selection process. Almost 130,000 volunteers in around 5,300 organisations throughout Australia will benefit from funding of $20 million under Volunteer Grants 2015.
The funding supports volunteers in their important work and the grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 each enables organisations to purchase much needed equipment such as computers, or help with training volunteers, fuel costs or undertaking background security checks.
