Young announces Longman volunteer grants
TERRY Young, Federal MP for Longman, announced the latest round of grants to volunteer organisations in the district.
“I see time and time again the vital role that volunteers play in the region and how their hard work continues to strengthen our local communities,” Mr Young said.
“There are many wonderful local community groups that play such an important role in our community, and I’m delighted to be able to help them out through this program.”
The 2021 Volunteer Grants provide organisations with grants of between $1,000 to $5,000 to help purchase equipment, train staff, carry out volunteers’ background checks or to re-imburse costs incurred while carrying out their duties.
They can also be used to increase participation, promote awareness of volunteering opportunities, and adjust policies and procedures to strengthen safety.
