“Our ‘Strengthening Inclusive Pathways to Employment’ program is a funding pool of nearly $1 million to deliver projects and programs that will help with people’s confidence and skills in order to get into employment, or indeed into volunteering which might also open up the door to employment,” Minister Cook says.

Applications for the new fund are now open and will close on 3 April, 2024.
