Volunteering Strategy –  Call for Input


This document is a ‘Call for Input’ (CFI) by the Department of Rural and Community Development (the Department) to inform and seek views from stakeholders on key topics under consideration to develop a National Strategy on Volunteering (the Strategy).


The purpose of this document is to:


  • Inform stakeholders of the proposed volunteering strategy;
  • Seek views from stakeholders on what constitutes volunteering;
  • Invite comments and proposals on the CFI including additional and emerging considerations which may further inform the Strategy.

The outcome of this CFI and potentially the input from a proposed National Advisory Group will inform the Department’s development of this volunteering strategy.



If you would like to contribute your views on volunteering, please download the Submission Form. The closing date for submissions is 3pm on Thursday, 14 February 2018. Submissions received after this time and date will not be considered. Only submissions made on the Submission Form will be considered.
