Volunteering Australia engages in consultation to ensure that our work is representative of the views of the volunteering sector. Your feedback will be vital to achieving policy outcomes for the sector.

We encourage all volunteers, and staff of Volunteer Involving Organisations and Volunteering Support Services to have their say.

  • You are not required to answer every question, only those that are relevant to you, your position or organisation.
  • Please use the Consultation Template when responding to the questions.
  • All feedback will be considered during the consultative process. Please note: it may not be possible to include everything in submissions, reports and other policy outcomes.

All feedback must be emailed to lavanya@volunteeringaustralia.org by 5pm AEST on Friday 3 November. Late submissions will not be accepted.
