Volunteering WA Volunteers
Volunteering WA is proud to have a team of over 40 volunteers who help out at our office in West Leederville and Hubs across the State. They assist us in many different ways, from corporate projects to volunteer support services, and at the many events we run each year.
In 2019-20, 43 volunteers contributed over 2,200 hours in the areas of strategy, policy, research, IT, events, legal, administration and volunteer support. Using the ‘Benefits Calculator for Organisations’ and taking into account volunteer expenses, we estimate a conservative value of volunteers’ contribution to be worth over $175,000. A huge thank you to our spectacular volunteers!
The COVID-19 crisis saw a reduction in our volunteer workforce from March – June but as restrictions eased in Western Australia we worked within State and Federal guidelines to bring back our volunteers safely.
Patron of Volunteering WA
We thank our Patron of Volunteering WA, His Excellency the Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia, for his commitment to volunteering and our organisation.
Volunteering WA is committed to serving the needs of volunteers and Volunteer Involving Organisations so they can maximise their impact on the community. Through ongoing collaboration with our valued partners and supporters, we continue to strive for every Western Australian to realise their potential to make a difference.
Our sincere appreciation is extended to all our stakeholders and supporters who have contributed to our success in 2019/2020. View are supporters here.
