Victorian volunteer strategy – consultation open

29 July 2019
volunteer strategy
The Victorian Government has a 2018 Election commitment to develop and implement a Volunteer Strategy to support and enhance volunteerism in Victoria.

The strategy will be informed by extensive consultation across the Victorian public and volunteering community, seeking deep insights into the challenges and opportunities for volunteers, community members, and managers of volunteers and organisations.

Online consultation is open on Engage Victoria until 24 November 2019, and we encourage you to have your say – as community members, volunteers, or leaders of community organisations. There are two surveys to capture insights from different groups with an interest in volunteering:

  • Volunteering leadership and support – seeking input on the strategic or operational leadership of volunteering, and feedback on how we can support and strengthen volunteering.
  • Community life and volunteering – seeking all views and experiences from the Victorian public, from a wide range of perspectives, including if they have never volunteered.

We are particularly keen to hear from a wide range of thoughts and perspectives of providers across the education, health and human services systems. Your views will be highly valuable to informing a future vision to strengthen volunteering.

We have also prepared a communications pack if you can help spread the word to your volunteers, and the people, organisations and groups that you work with.
