Working for Victoria Fund

Assistance to jobless workers

In Victoria - To help workers who have lost their jobs find new opportunities, the government, in consultation with the Victorian Council of Social Services and Victorian Trades Hall Council will establish a $500 million fund.

The Victorian Government aims to support workers who have lost their jobs find new opportunities. To do this, they will establish a Working for Victoria fund worth $500 million.

They will work in consultation with the Victorian Council of Social Services and Victorian Trades Hall Council and opportunities will include work cleaning public infrastructure or delivering food – thus providing vital contributions to Victoria’s response to the pandemic.

Some displaced workers will have skills that can be readily transferred to new roles. The Government can also assist with skills development or help people in obtaining immediate accreditation to commence work.

The Government will work across the public sector, local government, the not-for-profit sector and key private sector employers to facilitate job matching.
