The Australian Government is inviting organisations via a restricted process to apply to deliver services under the Families and Communities Program – Volunteer Management Activity from 1 January 2018 to 30 June 2021.

The Volunteer Management Activity aims to increase opportunities for people experiencing disadvantage and/or social exclusion to participate in the social and economic life of their broader community through volunteering, by:

  • maximising and promoting volunteer participation;
  • increasing the diversity of volunteers and the ways in which people volunteer;
  • maximising opportunities for volunteering to provide a pathway to other forms of social and economic participation;
  • matching potential volunteers with a volunteering role, especially humanitarian entrants or people experiencing disadvantage;
  • improving access to information on volunteering;
  • promoting innovation in volunteering;
  • providing access to the training, resources and support volunteers and volunteer involving organisations need;
  • building effective volunteering practices and opportunities within organisations and communities.
