News & Events

As the peak body for volunteering, we hold events throughout the year to inform on our policy and advocacy work, and to provide consultative feedback and input to Government. This includes consultations, forums and meetings. We are proud to hold National Volunteer Week every year, to acknowledge and celebrate the generous contributions of Australia’s volunteers. In addition, the National Volunteering Conference is an important national event that occurs annually, that brings together volunteers, volunteer managers, Volunteer Involving Organisations and Volunteering Support Services. The conference provides a platform for inclusive dialogue and robust discussions on volunteering issues.

Volunteering Australia produces a monthly electronic newsletter to keep the volunteering community and other interested parties, up-to-date with our activities and other relevant information about developments in the sector.
