Sport is commonly recognised as a key part of the Australian identity. Whether it’s at the community sport or high performance level, the power of sport to yield positive outcomes is well understood. It is a major source of entertainment across the country, and a significant contributor to positive social and health outcomes.

Sport Australia has taken the next steps towards building a more collaborative, cohesive and contemporary approach to volunteering in sport with the release of this insights report and new national plan for the future of sport volunteering.

The changing world also brings about a series of opportunities for the sport sector and volunteering. A growing focus on gender equality and the increase of women in sport, the focus on community cohesion, the growing interest in health and wellbeing, and the spotlight on cultural diversity and inclusion could all have a positive influence on sport volunteering.
