Tool to Help Orgs Meet Volunteering Standards
14 December 2015 at 10:26 am

Australian organisations can now access an online tool to assess whether or not they are meeting the new national standards for volunteering.

Volunteering Australia launched the tool, saying it would help organisations work towards the National Standards for Volunteer Involvement, launched in May.

“This is the critical next step in giving Volunteer Involving Organisations the means to measure their performance and achieve best practice, ultimately helping them to attract and retain volunteers,” CEO of Volunteering Australia Brett Williamson said.

Organisations can use the National Standards for Volunteer Involvement Tool to assess their organisation’s performance against the Standards, identify areas for development, and make improvements that will benefit both volunteers and the organisations they work with.

The tool also includes workflow management features, templates to assist with volunteer management and an automatically generated plan for good practice.

Williamson said organisations with volunteers needed to ensure they had systems in place to provide a quality volunteer experience.

“The National Standards for Volunteer Involvement Tool will assist them to fully implement these Standards by measuring their current performance and helping them work towards providing best practice in volunteer management by meeting the Standards,” he said.

The tool will cost organisations $300 for a one-year subscription.
