Volunteering Queensland is making a submission to the Queensland Government ahead of the 2021 – 2022 state budget. Ongoing advocacy is an essential part of Volunteering Queensland’s role as the peak body and the state budget presents a platform for further engagement.
Volunteering Queensland and Rockhampton Regional Council have just completed a 12-month project facilitating the development of a unique and exciting volunteer initiative, the Rockhampton Region Volunteer Organisations Active in Disaster (VOAD) Consortium. The VOAD brings together rural and urban Volunteer Involving Organisations (VIOs) from across the Rockhampton region, all with one purpose, stepping up to volunteer during disasters. The community groups are also excited about the prospect of being able to contribute to the long-term recovery of their community after disaster.
For over 30 years the Burnie Brae Centre has sought to build strong community connections by providing quality health, lifestyle and care services to their clients and members.
- Are you interested in the constitutional, ceremonial and community role of the Governor of Queensland?
- Are you also a history buff with a passion for sharing your knowledge?
- Do you enjoy public speaking and relish an opportunity to give back something to the Queensland community?
The Office of the Governor has an exciting opportunity for suitably skilled volunteers to join their Public Engagement Program and lead a diverse range of visitor groups through Government House and the Estate on guided tours. They are looking for people with a passion for history, culture, architecture and heritage and a desire to share this knowledge and interest with the Queensland community. They will provide you with contemporary content to highlight the role of the Governor as the representative of Her Majesty The Queen, Queensland’s Head of State along with comprehensive training to confidently and accurately deliver the history of Governors and the Government House Estate.
