Up to $10,000 is available to fund trainings for volunteers to increase their skills.
The Volunteer Training Grants recognise the value of providing training for volunteers and volunteer managers. The Grants are designed to boost their skills and experience to meet the needs of local communities and services.
The Office for Volunteers Volunteer Training Grants program helps communities in South Australia deliver training to support their local volunteers and volunteer managers.
Grants are awarded to South Australian volunteer resource centres, councils, suitably qualified training providers and not-for-profit incorporated community organisations. This funding helps them deliver training for volunteers and volunteer managers, increase their skills and experience and help meet the needs of local communities and services.
Grants of up to $10,000 towards the cost of training course/s will assist volunteers and volunteer managers from not-for-profit incorporated community organisations to:
- get the skills and qualifications they need
- meet the identified training needs of the local community.
Grant funding can be used for the following:
- training/provider fees, including travel costs associated with delivering training to volunteers in rural and remote areas of South Australia
- textbooks and other learning resources required (e.g. participant handbooks, learner guides etc.).
Please note: the training provider does not need to be a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
To be eligible for a Volunteer Training Grant, the applicant must:
- be a South Australian volunteer resource centre, council, suitably qualified training provider, or a not-for-profit incorporated community organisation
- deliver training that directly supports volunteers and/or volunteer managers from not-for-profit community organisations, who are incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act 1985.
Please note: Eligible organisations can only submit one grant application for funding through the Volunteer Training Grants program
Organisations from rural and remote areas of South Australia are encouraged to apply.
