Volunteering Qld works to encourage, recognise, promote and advocate for voluntary participation to benefit the individual and community.
As an impact focused organisation for nearly 30 years, our efforts have benefited and have been appreciated by volunteers, community organisations, the general public, governments and the business community.
Our work has been instrumental in the conceptualisation and establishment of volunteering models that underpin the many contexts in which volunteering activities take place. This investment of trust remains an inspiration that sustains the work of our volunteers, paid personnel, the board and our supporters.
In 2010, the story of volunteering continues. New technologies, rapid social change and technical developments offer new opportunities for traditional and contemporary modes of engagement to intersect, weaving an exciting narrative of blurred boundaries and endless possibilities.
