Volunteering Victoria is the state peak body for volunteering in Victoria, Australia.
We are a not-for-profit organisation promoting volunteering and leading and supporting the volunteer sector.
We serve individual volunteers, volunteer managers, volunteer-involving organisations, volunteer support networks and the community at large through our activities, the programs we initiate, the services we offer and the advice we provide.
We bring together volunteers, not-for-profit organisations, business and the State Government in order to achieve our goal of strengthening communities all over Victoria.
We focus our efforts on ensuring the sustainability of volunteering for the long-term by building the capacity of volunteer-involving organisations and communities as they recruit, train and manage volunteers.
Our core program areas are: Promoting volunteering
Training and Education
Resource Development, Communication and Information
Volunteering Victoria has a Board of Management with members who serve in a voluntary capacity and this leadership group is currently composed of individuals from the volunteering and not-for-profit sectors and beyond. Dianne Embry is the Chief Executive Officer.
