We are here to help you grow a thriving volunteer community

As your peak volunteer body, Volunteering WA is here to support you and champion the volunteering community, so you can focus on maximising your volunteering program and making a difference. Think of us as your partner in the volunteer journey – from recruiting, to engaging, retaining and growing a thriving volunteer community. Working together, we can also help you connect with volunteers from diverse groups such as people living with disability, First Nations Peoples, new migrants, and those in regional, rural or remote areas.

Build your organisational capacity

Volunteering WA administers the Federal Government Department of Social Services' Volunteer Management Activity (VMA), alongside our volunteer peak body counterparts in each State and Territory. 

The government is promoting a more consistent national approach to development and delivery of resources. It also is promoting more access to regional volunteer organisations, improved information technology access and good volunteer management practices that also gives additional support to involving vulnerable people in volunteering.  There are different government funds to support thriving volunteering and communities across Australia. From 2021 – 2026 a source of federal funding to strengthen the capacity of volunteer involving organisations, is provided by Department of Social Services.

You can also help guide the new program development by sharing your experiences through feedback, surveys or being part of discussions on what your organisation would find useful to better support volunteer management into the future.
