Volunteering Australia Calls for Survey Responses
19 July 2018 at 1:27 pm

Volunteering Australia is urging people to complete its anonymous online survey to help optimise its role as the national peak body for volunteering, working to advance volunteering in the community.

It’s only VA’s second annual survey in this format, and the organisation was hoping to improve on the turnout (300 respondents) in the first survey last year.

CEO Adrienne Picone told Pro Bono News that VA wants to hear what’s happening in the sector so it could be as responsive and relevant as possible.

“The feedback assists in gauging what the sector needs from VA in terms of its representation, communications, research, development and promotion of policy solutions, and social media,” she said.

“It’s important to ensure we are relevant and credible. A national peak body like VA is part of an ecosystem with volunteers at its very centre, then state and territory peak bodies, volunteer resource centres and volunteer-involving organisations.

“We want to make sure we are capturing all of that information and representing the sector well at the national level.”

Questions in the survey covered the quality and reach of VA work over the last year and seek ways to improve. It also asks for feedback on the theme and direction of National Volunteer Week (21-27 May).

“We want to make sure that we really understand the issues of the sector,” Picone said.

“Is there something that we’ve missed and should have been focussing more on, and are there other issues we need to recognise.”
