Giving back to our volunteers in Durack

Volunteers in Durack are among nearly 100, 000 volunteers across Australia benefiting from $10 million in Australian Government grants to support community organisations.
 
Minister for Social Services, Christian Porter, announced that almost 2,700 community organisations would benefit from a grant to support the work of volunteers.
 
Member for Durack, Melissa Price said the Turnbull Government’s investment in our communities is delivering vital support to Durack’s small community organisations, which help many of our most vulnerable citizens.
 
“The Volunteer Grants will assist 31 community organizations across Durack, including the Geraldton Tennis Club, the Wyalkatchem Men’s Shed, the Broome Junior Cricket Club and the Karratha Roosters Rugby League Club” Ms Price said. 
 
“The grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 enable Durack’s organisations to better support their volunteers by purchasing much-needed equipment, training and transport,” Ms Price said. 
 
“The Karratha Roosters will be using their $3,800 grant to contribute towards the training costs for volunteers, including First Aid and safety courses.”
 
“Next week, from 8th May, is National Volunteer Week, when we acknowledge the important work of our volunteers and their organisations in building stronger communities.
“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.”
