Social Policy Compendium

The Social Policy Compendium is a series of position statements of Volunteering Australia’s stance on particular volunteering related issues, to provide stakeholders with information and practical assistance in the formation of their own policy statements, and to support the sector.

The Social Policy Compendium aims to communicate the principles that underpin the work of Volunteering Australia. These position statements are evidence-based and reflect best-practice in volunteering. Evidence is drawn from local, national and international sources, as well as feedback from extensive consultation.

The position statements will be reviewed regularly in accordance with Volunteering Australia’s Strategic Plan 2017-2020.

The Social Policy Compendium will be reviewed every six-months.
