Volunteering: a tower of strength in our communities
The redesign of the Strong and Resilient Communities grants does not include a volunteer management stream of funding. This is an enormous blow to organisations who rely on volunteering to help deliver their programs and services.
Help us retain designated funding for Volunteering Support Services.
Our petition asks the Senate to:
- Recognise the important role that Volunteering Support Services have in building strong and resilient communities;
- Retain funding for volunteer management and Volunteering Support Services at the current level of between $5.7 million in the 2017/18 budget
We’re asking for your support by signing our petition – to help and for more information please visit the Volunteering Australia website.
