2019-20 Volunteer Grant – Family and Communities Program
In May 2020, Weston Creek Tennis Club was successful in its application for a Volunteer Grant under the Family and Communities Program - Volunteers Grant Activity in 2019-20 of $2,100. The funds will be used to mend the Club's fencing. Thank you to WCTC Vice President Graeme Rossiter for volunteering to paint the fence poles. For a list of successful application, please click HERE.
The Families and Communities Program aims to strengthen relationships, support families, improve well being of children and young people, reduce the cost of family breakdown and strengthen family and community functioning. Volunteer Grants aim to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers as well as to encourage and increase participation in volunteering. The grants provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers.
