Celebrating Victoria’s Talented Children

29 June 2017

The Andrews Labor Government is supporting not-for-profit organisations and councils to host free and fun activities for Victorian families as part of Children’s Week.

Minister for Families and Children Jenny Mikakos today invited eligible organisations to apply for funding to help cover the costs of activities or event during Children’s Week, which will run from 21-29 October.

The week-long celebration recognises the talents, skills, achievements and rights of children by offering free activities for Victorian families.

Grants ranging from $500 to $2000 can be used for costs associated with running an activity such as guest speakers, entertainment, performing artists, craft materials, children’s prizes or administrative costs.

The activity must be offered free to Victorian families with children, aged 0-12, or to early childhood services and schools.

Applications close at 5:00pm on Friday 21 July. For more information visit Link .
