We connect people to volunteering opportunities; support volunteer involving organisations with training, advice and volunteer recruitment; make sure information on services and supports is easily accessible to everyone through our Community Information services; support people experiencing disadvantage; and provide programs to help people reconnect with their community and access supported volunteering roles. 

Here are just some of the ways we support the volunteering and community information sector:

2018-2019

  • 7,339 VACT services accessed
  • 1,800 community information referrals
  • 8,948 volunteer referrals
  • 75 events and training
  • 161 volunteer managers trained
  • 175 volunteers trained
  • 7 policy submissions
  • Annual Volunteering Awards

Australians are known for their generous spirit and strong sense of community; just consider how we all pull together in a crisis. ACT volunteering activities contribute $1.5 billion to the economy and are critical to the health and happiness of our city.
