Introduced in 2015, this is Volunteering Australia’s definition of volunteering.
‘Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain.’
Volunteers make an extraordinary contribution to Australian society. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and come from all walks of life: working people, students and professionals, young people and retirees, from every town and community.
Join more than six million Australians who volunteer – there is a role to suit you.
