Energy Safe Victoria

Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) is continuing to support Victorian grassroots football clubs by providing Be Sure Safer Canteens grants of up to $1,000 to upgrade old and potentially dangerous gas and electrical canteen appliances.

ESV, in partnership with AFL Victoria, has already handed out more than $120,000 through the Be Sure Safer Canteens program over the past four years, helping 133 football canteens buy appliances that are safer and more efficient.

A total of $30,000 is available through this year’s program with more than 30 clubs expected to receive a grant. An additional $1,000 grant will be awarded through the Canteen Hero program, where ESV recognises the contribution of canteen volunteers, often the unsung heroes of footy clubs.
