Scope Global is seeking entries demonstrating innovative impact and change in the community from AVIDs engaged in partnership with their Host Organisations, or in activities they’ve developed separately in the community while in country.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has been allocated an estimated budget of $39.6 million for the Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program in 2015-16. This is a reduction from funding in 2014-15.
The AVID program will continue to send volunteers overseas. DFAT is exploring how this may affect the number of new volunteers to be deployed in 2015-16. To manage this impact, DFAT has instructed the AVID implementing partners (Scope Global, Australian Volunteers International and the Australian Red Cross) to delay the recruitment and selection of new volunteers, at this point in time.
