Volunteering

About the Special Interest Group

This Special Interest Group has a strategic focus, including volunteer management and mentoring. It aims to influence volunteering policy and practice through ongoing dialogue with the State Government and appropriate agencies, to address specific volunteering issues and to showcase successful programs. Cross-disciplinary meetings and/or workshops, may be held in partnership with other Special Interest Groups, on matters relating to volunteering.

  Online community

This Special Interest Group is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other resources will also be posted on the online community.
