VICSES Unit Funding Breakdown
Its reported by volunteers and media outlets that VICSES volunteers spend a large proportion of their time fund raising to keep their units running and equipment they need.
As well as the fund raising Local Government often provide buildings, outgoings, vehicles and equipment at no cost to the volunteers or to the State.
Each unit must submit audited finances to their Regional and State Head Offices. Yet in the VICSES Annual report their is no figures of this kind.
It would be good to have this data made available so that break downs on what volunteers and local government provide to a State Government Statutory Authority. This could then also highlight the level of support against a councils rate base.
