National strategy for volunteering 2023-2033

Community participation Volunteering Community development Australia

Following a rigorous and inspiring 12-month co-design journey, Australia has a new shared agenda for a reimagined future for volunteering. This strategy document, co-created by stakeholders from across the volunteering ecosystem, provides a blueprint for the next ten years that will enable volunteering in Australia to thrive.

Thousands of stakeholders participated in online consultations, interviews, participatory design workshops, working groups, surveys, and a bespoke research project to build the National strategy for volunteering. The culmination of this process identified a unifying vision, three focus areas and aims, and eleven strategic objectives.

The strategy was funded by the Australian Department of Social Services, led by Volunteering Australia, and co-designed by the entire volunteering ecosystem.
