2022-23 Research Grant Program - Recipient Announced


Volunteering WA, with the support of the Volunteering WA Research Committee, has an annual volunteering grant program for Western Australian researchers.    

The program objectives are to:

  • facilitate connections between researchers, Volunteering WA and its members;
  • enable Volunteering WA to find answers to pertinent research questions;
  • facilitate students / Early Career Researchers to engage with Volunteering WA and volunteer involving organisations; and
  • grow Western Australia’s capacity for volunteering research.

Volunteering WA congratulates the WA Council of State School Organisations Inc. (WACSSO) as the recipient of the 2022-23 Research Grant Program.    

WACSSO's project will examine the question of “Volunteer Engagement – Building Parent Participation in P&Cs across WA”.  

The WACSSO will work in partnership with Murdoch University to deliver the project, under the leadership of Dr Kath Sugars. 

Volunteering WA looks forward to sharing learnings from this project with members and our community.

More on this project can be found on our research page.

The next round of the program for 2023-24 projects will be released by August 2023.  To register your interest, please join our Volunteer Researcher Network by completing this short online form.
