Orgnisations supported to give volunteers a much needed hand up.

Friday May 24, 2024 

Federal Member for Nicholls, Sam Birrell MP, has welcomed nearly $60,000 in Federal funding tosupport volunteers across Nicholls.

28 local organisations will share in the funding with grants between $1000 and $5000.

Mr Birrell said the money will support the efforts of volunteers as well as help increase participation
in volunteering.

“While the grants are small, they will have a much bigger impact on our community,” Mr Birrell

“During the last few years sporting clubs and community organisations have suffered a lot of
disruption and this funding will help to rebuild, reconnect and provide support.

The grants can be used in a variety of ways including purchasing equipment, upskilling and training volunteers as well as travel costs.

Mr Birrell thanked volunteers for their ongoing work.
“Volunteers bring communities together and drive physical and social wellbeing of residents,” Mr
Birrell said.

“Community groups, projects, services, and events would not and could not go ahead without the
efforts of volunteers,” he said.
