Australia’s largest volunteering survey ever

The Volunteering in Australia organisation survey is a historic opportunity to capture the current state of volunteering, map trends, and consider how volunteering may evolve into the future.

Volunteering Australia, in partnership with Curtin University, Griffith University, and the University of Western Australia, is conducting the largest ever survey of volunteer involving organisations in Australia.

If you are a volunteer manager, program leader, CEO, or otherwise represent a group involving volunteers, you are invited you to have your say on the future of volunteering.

By participating in the survey, you will help build the most comprehensive understanding of volunteering in Australia’s history. The findings of this research will inform the development of the National Strategy for Volunteering, which will provide a blueprint for a reimagined future for volunteering in Australia.

Closing date: 2 June
