Volunteer Grants 2016

Last year the Community Grants Hub, on behalf of the Department of Social Services (DSS), invited organisations and  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.

 We are please to advise the NSW Boys Group and Victoria Group were successful, receiving grants of $3900 and $5000 respectively.
