Current Advocacy

Volunteering Victoria advocates for and supports the rights, well-being and interests of volunteers. We build and maintain strong mutually beneficial relationships to ensure engagement and investment for the volunteering sector.

Volunteering Victoria has set a number of strategically significant priorities to:

  • Influence State government and members on policy matters that impact volunteering
  • Support VA, State Peaks and others to succeed in the changing world of volunteering
  • Enable members to advocate within their own sector (e.g. local govt, own peak body etc.) to support the rights, well-being and interests of volunteers
  • Develop and promote resources that improve the volunteering sector and the volunteering experience.
