Update on the 2020 Volunteer Grants for Cook

Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 have been granted to help local community organisations support the efforts of local community volunteers. A total funding pool of $66,000 was available for our electorate, to be used to buy small equipment for volunteers or for the reimbursement of volunteer fuel, transport or training costs. 

 

The Cook Electorate has been significantly impacted by coronavirus this year. This funding will go a long way to support volunteers to continue their important work in the community. 

 

Volunteers are an integral part of our society, especially during difficult times. Their contribution is vital to ensuring that we continue to support families, provide employment pathways for young people and strengthen community resilience.

 

The groups awarded with the 2020 Volunteer Grants for Cook provide community connection, enhance the skills of our locals, and enables our locals to access support in welcoming and safe environments. 

 

The groups will use this money for a variety of different things, such as first aid programs, new technology, new security systems, and mental health programs. 

 

Congratulations to all the organisations who were successful in the 2019-2020 Volunteer Grants.
