Volunteering Australia’s tower of strength petition, campaigning for the retention of designated funding for Volunteering Support Services was tabled in the Senate yesterday 21 June 2017 by Senator Pratt.

We would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the volunteering sector, Senator Pratt, members of Parliament and the wider community for their support of the campaign.
