The Federal Government’s 2023-24 Volunteer Grants are now open. As your local Member of Federal Parliament am pleased to invite not-for-profit community organisations in the electorate of Barker to participate in program.

The Volunteers Grant Program was an initiative of the Coalition Government, supporting our commitment to assist and encourage volunteering in our local communities.

Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 can be used to buy small piece of plant and equipment, for the reimbursement of volunteer fuel, transport or training costs or to purchase items that help promote awareness of volunteering opportunities.

  • Help community organisations to support the inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering
  • Encourage, support and increase participation in volunteering
