National Survey of Volunteering Issues
14 September 2009 at 2:06 pm
Volunteering Australia has launched the 2009 National Survey of Volunteering Issues with its online survey.
Volunteering Australia says the National Survey of Volunteering Issues helps understand what issues are emerging in the sector and what factors help or hinder effective volunteering.
The organisation says it uses this information to formulate policy positions to put to government and also to target where its research and consultation efforts should be directed.
This is the fourth National Survey of Volunteering Issues, which includes questions and themes from previous years’ surveys to enable VA to compare and track volunteering trends, as well as including some new themes such as employee volunteering, the measurement of volunteer contribution and volunteers’ sense of community belonging.
VA says this year the survey has also been refined to make it easier for participants to respond.
The 2009 National Survey of Volunteering Issues report will be released on Friday the 4 December in celebration of International Volunteer Day (Saturday 5 December).
The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete and is open until 30 October.
Participants are able to save their responses and return to the survey at a later stage.
