Strong, connected communities through volunteering
To advance volunteering for Queensland's economic, social, cultural and environmental well-being
We operate with integrity and commit to being:
Leading the way
We are the lead voice for volunteering in Queensland supporting this essential industry to thrive. As the state peak body we are solely dedicated to advancing and promoting volunteering. To achieve our vision we work across three strategic focus areas:
volunteer-involving organisations to maximise volunteer contribution
more Queenslanders to volunteer
the impact of the volunteering sector
Our work is vital to ensuring volunteer-involving organisations can engage, manage and retain the strong, effective volunteer workforce necessary to advance their mission and cause. We support volunteer participation that is inclusive, transformative, flexible and meaningful. We inform policy, good practice, research and development, regulation and decision-making that supports the sustainability and advancement of volunteering.
We actively campaign that investing in volunteering is fundamental to the continued prosperity of Queensland. The volunteering industry is a vital force that fuels the economy, connects and enriches the lives of Queenslanders, builds social and cultural value, and protects the environment.
To support the whole of Queensland, we harness the power of strategic partnerships and strive to engage the state-wide volunteer network. We ground our efforts in inclusive practices and principles based on service, experience, evidence, transparency, accountability, consultation and continuous improvement.
