As COVID-19 emerges to be the defining global health crisis of our time, it has highlighted more than ever the integral role of volunteers in our communities as they continue to be amongst the first respondents to every crisis. Despite that, organisations continue to struggle to retain their volunteers, especially as restrictions continue. Leaders of volunteers face uncertainty around funding for their volunteer programs, uncertainty around when their volunteer programs can re-commence and the question whether or not volunteers will return as restrictions ease.
I invite you to read our submission below to the Victorian Government for our recommendations on how the volunteering sector can better be supported during these times.
As the current situations evolves, we will continue to update our website with new information and resources. Stay safe & well!
