Volunteer Impact

The Department of Planning and Community Development (2012) estimated that volunteering contributions were worth about $23 billion to the Victorian economy in 2011, and are set to grow to as much as $42 billion by 2021 if rates of volunteering continue.

Volunteers are an important part of Victoria’s social, economical, cultural and environmental fabric delivering immense value to communities and individuals.

The following reports provide evidence on the current state of volunteering in Victoria.
