Volunteer Grants 2018
I am writing to let you know that the Volunteer Grants programme will be opening soon.
The Coalition Government is investing $20 million in Volunteer Grants to support, encourage and increase participation in volunteering in local communities.
Grants between $1,000 and $5,000 are available to help not-for-profit community organisations or groups in Deakin to support their volunteers through practical measures including, the purchase of small equipment items, reimbursement for volunteers’ fuel and transport costs, and contributions towards the cost of training and background screening checks.
The Volunteer Grants programme opens in August and will provide a valuable opportunity for your organisation to support its volunteers.
I’m encouraging all not-for-profit organisations in Deakin to apply for the upcoming round of Volunteer Grants.
If you intend on applying or for more information, please contact my office on 03 9874 1711 or email me at Michael.Sukkar.MP@aph.gov.au.
You can also visit the Department of Social Services’ Community Grants Hub website to subscribe to updates on the application process.

There was supposed to be a lot of cricket going on today (Saturday 24th March) with the BHRDCA and RDCA Grand Finals!
But with the matches probably being washed out today, it was good to catch up with so many local club members to mark another great season in both local cricket associations. — at East Burwood Reserve.
The BHRDCA would like to acknowledge the fantastic effort that Jason May and his fabulous team at East Burwood CC went to over the 3 days play for the Kookaburra Ray McIntosh Shield. The setup & packup ran smoothly under difficult conditions. The presidents lunch and afternoon tea’s were outstanding thanks to Patrice, Libby & Sue.
We congratulate you all
BHRDCA along with MySportLive have achieved record breaking viewing stats with Facebook alone reaching over 13,000 viewers. Well done to Hoops, Lui, Bobby, Spider, Crofty, Adam & Preso Peter Rosenthal. They provided great commentary to compliment the fantastic visual coverage.
Another great Presidents Lunch at the Kookaburra Ray McIntosh Grand Final. A great turn out from club representatives, sponsors and VIP’s.
Thanks to Michael Sukkar, Neil Angus & the many sponsors for their donations that helped raise $633 for Taralye – a school in Blackburn for hearing impaired children.

Below is the link to the Live Stream to the BHRDCA Kookaburra Ray McIntosh Shield for 2017/18.
This will be played on Sunday March 18 & Saturday March 24 at East Burwood Reserve between Forest Hill and Vermont CC’s.
This has been a great innovation and we are into our 4th year of doing this. With tremendous support from My Sport Live we bring local cricket around the world through the live stream.
With 7,866 views last year and an average viewing time of 14:36 mins there is great exposure for our sponsors, BHRDCA and local cricket generally.
If you cant get to the game, I hope you can follow it on the live stream which is considerably enhanced by our expert commentary team calling every ball bowled.
