Research tells us that without change to the volunteering sector we’ll see a shortfall of 40% (demand for volunteers vs supply of volunteers) by 2030. To address this, Volunteering Tasmania has partnered with Tasmanian local councils through the Safeguarding Volunteering Project, to develop volunteer sustainability strategies to safeguard and prepare for the future of volunteering in communities.
Clarence, King Island, Break O’Day, Devonport and Huon Valley councils and communities have been working with us, using a community co-design framework, to build strategies that are place-based and strategically focused to build a stronger and more sustainable future for volunteering.
We will continue to support more local government areas to invest strategically in local volunteer sustainability.
Resources and tools have been developed as part of this project to support all local councils, organisations and communities to develop their own strategies. If this interests you, please check out the resources below or watch the video which will help you navigate the resources.
This program has been funded by the State Government.
