Grant boosts league training
The Pilbara Rugby League has received a $3800 grant to train volunteers in first aid, safety and other areas.
The grant was part of a $10 million Federal Government program to support community organisations.
Durack MHR Melissa Price said the grants acknowledged Volunteer Week, when the work of volunteers across Australia was recognised.
“The grants of between $1000 and $5000 enable Durack’s organisations to better support their volunteers by purchasing much-needed equipment, training and transport,” she said.
“The energy, expertise and time our volunteers give to our community supports those most in need and represents what Australian communities are all about — giving a helping hand.
“I’m glad to see that our local organisations will have this support to continue their valuable work.”
Social Services Minister Christian Porter said almost 2700 community organisations would benefit from a grant to support the work of volunteers.
