Volunteering in Australia Research – The Volunteer Perspective

Volunteering Australia is currently leading the Volunteering in Australia research project, which will produce a series of four reports that will serve as a core evidence base on contemporary volunteering in Australia. The research will also be used to inform the development of the National Strategy for Volunteering.

The four reports will be based on:

  1. A representative survey of the general Australian population
  2. A survey of and a series of focus groups with volunteer involving organisations
  3. An analysis of supply and demand for volunteers among organisations across Australia
  4. A review of methods of valuing the contributions of volunteering in Australia

The population survey was undertaken in April 2022 and we have produced an Early Insights Report that summarises the key findings.
