The ETU supports a range of community and non-government organisations, many of which do not receive support from traditional sources. Sponsorship and resources provided to these organisations by the ETU include volunteer time and financial and network support. These are some of the most recent organisations to receive backing from our Community Grants Scheme.

Applications for Community Grants can be made by contacting Assistant Secretary Ivan Balta. For more info email him at Conditions apply.
