ABC Devotes Australia Day to Volunteers
Thursday, 19th January 2012 at 11:25 am

Australia’s National broadcaster, the ABC, has joined forces with Volunteering Australia (VA) to devote Australia Day to encouraging more people to volunteer.

Help Australia Day will be held across ABC radio stations featuring volunteer interviews, program segments and information on how people can volunteer.

Volunteering Australia says it applauds this ABC initiative that will help many Not for Profits increase their volunteer numbers.

In the latest National Survey of Volunteering Issues 68.3% of respondents said that their organisation needed more volunteers.

Volunteering Australia says the Help Australia Day will make a difference to many Australians who benefit from the selfless work of volunteers.

VA says Help Australia Day will make a difference to many Australians who benefit from the selfless work of volunteers.

The ABC says On Help Australia Day last year volunteers answered the call to assist with flood recovery in Queensland.

“This year the ABC and Volunteering Australia have highlighted areas of need for volunteers, including health, sport, the arts, environment and education.Put your hand up and join over five million Australian volunteers.”

Listen to ABC Local Radio on Australia Day and join in on the activities!
