Funding for First Aid Training For Volunteer Organisations

Cardiac Safe Can Help You With Your Training Needs

Did you know that you could apply for funding from the federal government for volunteers training through Department of Social Services (DSS). Your organisation or community group can apply for a grant and use the money to help your volunteers learn first aid as needed for their volunteering work. The value of the grants ranges from $1000 to $5000.

The kinds of courses that can attract funding include mental health, first aid, leadership, communication skills, governance, and working with vulnerable people. Preferred courses are those that are recognised at a state or national level, and that lead to a Statement of Attainment, Certificate or Diploma. Cardiac Safe offers nationally recognised training in partnership with Allens training PTY LTD (RTO#90909).

Be aware that there are some restrictions, and eligibility conditions apply. For example, training that has already been paid for from other sources is ineligible. Grants cannot be applied for training for paid staff, or for members, participants and clients of your organisation or community group. And grant money cannot be used to pay for training materials, travel to and from training, and venue hire.

The current funding round closes on 20 December 2016, so visit the DSS Volunteer Grants website to check you eligibility and to apply for a grant.

A range of first aid, workplace health and safety, and construction and industry courses are available from Cardiac Safe and our partners.

The Training can be delivered onsite at your facility or at one of our training rooms in the Redland City Area.
