More than 18 agencies joined forces to thank Brisbane volunteers for their contribution to the aged care and disability sectors by organising Brisbane’s first Volunteer Leadership Forum. The Volunteer Leadership Forum, held on Friday 25 August 2017 and hosted by Griffith University’s Southbank Campus, was a day of professional development training to build volunteer skills, meet others in similar roles, receive gifts and prizes of appreciation, and share in a delicious lunch. 

In contemporary society, there's a multitude of ways in which individuals volunteer or engage with community

A series for three Volunteer Leadership Forums held in Logan (1 November), Brisbane (27 November) and Ipswich (28 November) were organised in partnership between Griffith University’s Community Internship Program, Flexible Living’s Volunteer Service, Volunteering Services Australia (West Moreton) and Volunteering Queensland, with the generous support of Logan City Council and Griffith University, following the success of 2017’s inaugural Brisbane Volunteer Leadership Forum. The vision was free professional development opportunities gifted to volunteers, and volunteer coordinators and managers, as a gesture of thanks for the important role volunteers play in the community, and the contribution of volunteering to society as a whole.
