Australia nationally recognises Harmony Day on Wednesday 21 March 2018 to celebrate our cultural diversity and it also coincides with the United Nations ‘International Day of the Elimination of Racial Discrimination’.
World Health Day is an opportunity to call upon world leaders to live up to the pledges they made upon agreeing to the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 and commit to positive steps to promote and advance #HealthForAll. The theme for this year’s World Heath Day theme is, 'Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere'.
Don’t miss this important opportunity to inform the future of federal funding for volunteering
Join mpconsulting and Volunteering Queensland for a consultation workshop to review the Department of Social Services (DSS) Volunteer Management Program (VMP). You are invited to contribute ideas and discussion of potential new models for volunteering funding and service delivery. Together we will unpack the pros and cons of existing models and approaches, and focus on the needs, challenges and opportunities for change to maximise the potential of volunteering in both the Queensland and national context.
As you go to sleep tonight and every night in a safe secure home, think of the thousands of young people experiencing homelessness who are out on the street alone, sleeping in a park or couch surfing in someone’s living room.
