Australian Institute of Disaster Resilience (AIDR) Volunteer

Please find information below on the Australian Institute of Disaster Resilience (AIDR) Volunteer Leadership Program for 2021.
This program equips emergency sector volunteers with the skills and confidence to grow as leaders. It is an experience that is immersive and collaborative, bringing together volunteers from different organisations and agencies to build knowledge and share experiences with each other. The program explores practical leadership frameworks through interactive learning, and participants gain both self-awareness and an enhanced ability to understand and contribute to their organisations.
AIDR has published the 2021 Volunteer Leadership Program (VLP) dates and locations on their website here.   While the schedule may change due to local COVID-a9 restrictions, you can view what is proposed for the next nine months – including Port Macquarie and Canberra. This is a free program, and SLS are allocated a couple of spots in each so we should use them! The program runs traditionally from Friday 4.30pm until 2pm Sunday, and participants must pay their own transport costs to and from the venue, however all other costs are covered (twin-share accommodation).
I would encourage you all to circulate information about this program to your networks, and encourage aspiring volunteer leaders to submit an application.  All applications will need an organisational endorsement, and this can be obtained by emailing me directly cbevis@surflifesaving.com.au.

Local Sporting Champions
The Local Sporting Champions grant provides financial assistance for coaches, officials and competitors aged 12-18 participating in state, national or international championships.
Children can represent their sporting club or their school in these sporting events.
If successful, individual applicants will receive $500-$750 towards the cost of attending their championships, covering travel, accommodation, entry fees, uniforms, equipment and other travel expenses.  This grant is given out every three months – the usual deadlines are June 30, September 30, December 31 and March 31 each year.
Parents & children need to apply directly via a simple online application form.
This is a fantastic grant that is ‘electorate based’, meaning each electorate is given a certain number of grants to award.  This number is a reflection of the number of eligible applications received. So we would like to encourage all eligible kids in Warringah to apply.
Applications for LSC have reopened since COVID restrictions have been relaxed.  The next deadline for applications is 31 March 2021.
