Expert Workshop on Volunteering

An expert workshop on volunteering was hosted by the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership and Volunteering Australia to mark International Volunteer Day. The workshop was a great opportunity to discuss the current state of play for volunteering and explore options for the future.
 
Highlights included:
• Strategic discussions on how we value the volunteer contribution and recognise volunteers
• Presentation from Justice Connect highlighting the importance of a statutory definition of volunteering
• The role that volunteering has on the success of the Sustainable Development Goals
• A number of recommendations were made by the Expert Group that will be considered by Government
