The State of Volunteering in Victoria Report (2020) is first of its kind in Victoria and is the flagship initiative of the Victorian Volunteering Strategy.
We are undertaking research to highlight the value of volunteering and the contribution of volunteers for organisations across the Victoria.
Our State of Volunteering Report will build on the work that other States and Territories have done to explore and document volunteering behaviour and how organisations engage volunteers. The report will allow us to calculate the economic contribution that the volunteering sector provides for Victorian communities
This research will help to demonstrate the many social, cultural, and economic benefits that volunteering contributes to Victorians. A strong evidence base of the value of volunteering allows governments and organisations to make more informed decisions which better reflect the impact of volunteering.View State of Volunteering Report
