About us

Current logo with tagline - Pink - Registered

As Tasmania’s Peak body for volunteering, our mission is to create an environment which promotes and sustains effective volunteerism.

We deliver our mission in three key ways:

  • Supporting and facilitating pathways to volunteering for all members of the community, ensuring barriers to volunteering are minimised and opportunities are optimised
  • Providing consultancy, resources and information to volunteer involving organisations and programs, helping them to effectively support all volunteers within their programs, and aiding them in recruitment of a variety of individuals
  • Influencing public policy and promoting research and debate

Volunteering Tasmania is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to represent the interests of all Tasmanians involved in volunteering through research, consultation, policy development and community relationships.
