Leep Volunteer Solutions are reaching out to ask for your help. The community sector at large has faced a number of funding cuts in recent times, and those cuts are now threatening volunteer management and volunteer support services. The Federal Government redesign of the Strengthening Communities Program – to become the Strong and Resilient Communities Program in 2018 – does not include a stream of funding allocated to Volunteer Support Services.
This means services such as Leep’s Volunteer Solutions are competing for funds against other very worthwhile (but very different) causes and facing severe cuts to service delivery.
Our team take such pride and joy in being able to support and work with you and your volunteers. We hope to continue to do so, and are campaigning alongside Volunteering Australia and Volunteer Support Services across the country to retain designated funding for Volunteering Support Services.
What can you do?

Thank you for your continued support and engagement with our program, and we look forward to continuing to work with you for hopefully many years to come!
