How you can help shape future of volunteering

HELP shape the future of volunteering by having you say in developing the third NSW Volunteering Strategy.

Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services, Gareth Ward, urged anyone interested in volunteering to take part in a public consultation survey aimed towards boosting volunteerism in our State.
“In developing this important Volunteer Strategy, we want to hear what’s working well and what can be improved, to ensure we maintain a vibrant volunteering sector,” he said.
“Volunteers in NSW contribute a combined 240 million hours of their time each year. This contribution needs to be recognised and supported in the best way possible.
“The NSW Volunteering Strategy will support the 2.1 million volunteers across the state and will be guided by the views and ideas expressed through the online consultation.”
