In the lead up to the 2016 Federal Election, Volunteering Australia called on every candidate to Vote for Volunteering as part of a national strategy to raise awareness of the challenges faced by our volunteering community. Thank you to all of the candidates who committed to Vote for Volunteering. Click here for the list of all candidates who have taken the Volunteering Australia pledge.

After the final votes have been counted we will be analysing the role that volunteering played in this election campaign and will continue our discussions with Australia’s federal politicians about the contribution of volunteering to the national interest, and the support we need from them to strengthen our capacity even further. Click here to learn more about Volunteering Australia’s Federal Election platform.
