Community Enterprise (SPICE) scheme

(Question No 524)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Education, Youth and Family Services, upon notice, on 1 April 2003:

In relation to the Students Participating in Community Enterprises (SPICE) scheme:

(1) How much funding did this service receive in the current budget;

(2) Is that amount more or less than in (a) 2001-02 and (b) 2000-01;

(3) Is there any scope for more funds to be allocated;

(4) How many students have accessed this service each month from July 2002 to 31 March 2003;

(5) What are the benefits of this service;

(6) Will the government continue to financially support this service.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to Mrs Burke's question is:

(1) The SPICE project was not funded in the current budget. It received no funding in the 2002-2003 budget.

(2) This program was funded for the first time in the 2001-02 budget. It did not operate prior to this time.

(a) The SPICE program received $12,975 in the budget 2001-2002.

(b) No funding was provided in 2000-01.

(3) There is no scope for further funds to be allocated at this time. This program was funded for the first time in the 2001-02 budget. The funding was given as 'kick-start' funding under the Schools as Communities program.


These funds are made available to community groups on the understanding that the funding is not recurrent.


Planning for sustainability after the funding has ceased is the responsibility of the funded organisation.
