Volunteering Australia is delighted to be part of the inaugural Sport Volunteer Coalition to shape the future of sport volunteering in Australia.
The Coalition, announced by Sport Australia, will work together to transform the sport volunteer experience and promote the value of volunteering in sport. The coalition, which is a key part of Sport Australia’s Sport Volunteering National Plan, will play a critical role in supporting the volunteering sector.
The Coalition is made up of a diverse group of individuals from across the country that bring unique experiences and knowledge including Volunteering Australia’s National Strategy Director, Sarah Wilson.
Sarah Wilson hopes to bring greater awareness to the critical role volunteers play in enabling sport to take place across Australia. Sarah aims to contribute to evidence-based solutions that improve the accessibility of sport volunteering to ensure people of all ages, genders, sexual orientation, abilities, backgrounds and cultures can participate.
Volunteering Australia looks forward to the impact the coalition will have on the volunteer experience in sport including volunteers being supported, tailoring roles to meet individual needs and making it easy to be involved,
