Submission to the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System
This Position Paper seeks to bring into focus the elements of the Final Report of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System which relates to volunteering, so that the Victorian Government can incorporate the following ideas in its response to the Commission.
Volunteering Management Activity (VMA)
We have been working with Volunteering Australia and other State Territory Peak bodies and volunteer resource centres to plan the re-design of the VMA.
Victorian LGBTIQ+ Strategy 2021
We believe there is an opportunity through the development of the Victorian LGBTIQ+ Strategy to take a further systemic and strategic approach to improve LGBTIQ+ inclusion in our communities, by building greater capacity for inclusive volunteering in our sector.
Worker Screening Regulations 2020
We call on the Government to exempt volunteers in the disability sector from the costs of screening checks as is currently, and will continue to be, the case with volunteers who work with children.
Victorian Government COVID submission 2020
We welcome the opportunity to submit to the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee (PAEC) on the Victorian Government’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Involve Your Local 2019
The Victorian election will be held on 24 November 2019. Political parties will be campaigning in their electorates hoping to get your vote. Here’s how your organisation can show them the enormous contribution that volunteers make in Victoria.
State Election Priorities 2018
Through these election priorities we aim to promote and build a vibrant, prosperous and strong volunteering community that is inclusive, respected and sustainable.
