State of Volunteering Report

Volunteering Victoria, in partnership with the Victorian Government, will launch the State of Volunteering in Victoria report.

The report is a flagship initiative of the Victorian Volunteering Strategy underway by the Victorian Government. More about the strategy can be found here.

The State of Volunteering in Victoria is a research report which documents the value of volunteering to Victoria. The research also maps out the state of volunteering before the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of the early stages of the pandemic.

Leaders of volunteers will benefit from the research findings, which covers the barriers and motivations of volunteers and the broader management practices of the volunteer sector.

More about the State of Volunteering Report can be found here.
