Skilled Volunteers – A Guide for Community Organisations
Friday, 16th May 2008 at 2:21 pm

The Victorian Council Of Social Services, VCOSS has compiled a guide to assist community organisations access the support of skilled volunteers.

The guide includes entries from ten Victorian skilled volunteer providers, including Pro Bono Australia’s VolunteerMatch.

Each entry outlines the type of support available, examples of assistance provided to community organisations and who to contact for further information.

The guide itself is also an example of the benefits of accessing support through skilled volunteer providers.

Two thirds of the cost of the project was covered by the contribution of skilled volunteers

VCOSS Chief Executive Officer, Cath Smith launched the publication called Skilled Volunteers: A Guide for Community Organisations which was compiled by the VCOSS Training and Development Clearinghouse.

Smith says despite limited budgets, community organisations are the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of vulnerable Victorians every year, for a very wide variety of services and programs. Volunteers help community organisations deliver these important services.

She says VCOSS is proud to be involved in a project that harnesses goodwill, skills and time within communities and businesses to assist in service delivery and in ‘back of house’ solutions to support organisational capacity.

Pro Bono Australia has hard copies of the Guide. Request a copy via email to probono@probonoaustralia.com.au
