A strong, connected, and resilient Australian community through volunteering
To lead, strengthen, and celebrate volunteering in Australia
Volunteering Australia has identified the following values to underpin all its work:
We are the recognised national peak body for volunteering in Australia and play an important leadership role among our members, the ecosystem, and to the community more widely.
We work hard to build strong, productive, and mutually beneficial partnerships, and believe the best results arise from effective collaboration with governments, businesses, for-purpose organisations, and individuals.
Our priorities, decisions, policies, and activities are based on sound evidence and credible research, and we actively seek to support and encourage the research that is needed to advance volunteering.
We understand and appreciate the importance of good governance, financial management and reporting to maintain our reputation as a credible, trustworthy, and sustainable organisation.
