____________________________________

As a peak body with over 500 members, we recognise that many volunteer-involving organisations rely on volunteers within their operations. Volunteers continue to be the gatekeepers of critical resources and support to many communities, especially those who remain the most vulnerable amongst us.

We appreciate more than ever what a precious resource volunteers continue to be. I look forward to the time when we can all welcome your helping hand back into our physical work spaces. Until then, you can stay engaged by connecting with us on our socials media or sharing with us your volunteering experience during COVID-19.

We will continue to update our website with new information as the situation and the needs of the sector continue to evolve.
