impact of covid-19
The initial COVID-19 impact in April-May 2020 saw a 50.2% decline in the volunteering participation rate, from 42.1% (2.3 million) to 21.0% (1.1 million). There was a net decline in volunteering hours of almost two-thirds (64.1%) during this period.
In response to the devastating impacts of COVID-19, we are pleased to be delivering weVolunteer in partnership with the State Government. weVolunteer is a single state-wide database platform that enables community collaboration and effort to be quickly matched to needs being expressed at a local level.
