The Volunteer support program
<> is
there for more complex or larger requests, if we have people in these
fields incurring costs for others then WMAu is available to help, we can
include other skills within the register as well the idea is to  break the
small cost which feel too trivial for some but are a burden for others from
creating collaboration barriers.

It'd also consolidate and simplify  the reporting necessary for  activities
using member funds with these small amounts
