The NSW government has established a NSW Volunteering Taskforce which is consulting with the volunteering sector throughout September.

The NSW Volunteering Taskforce is consulting with NSW volunteers and volunteer involving organisations to identify emerging trends, issues, and opportunities across the Volunteering Sector.

The Taskforce, chaired by the Hon. Scott Farlow, is made up of 13 volunteers and volunteer organisations and will look into a number of topics including volunteer recruitment, retention, research and recognition.

Responses from the sector will help to shape a final report which will be presented to the minister, Natasha Maclaren-Jones, by December and will include recommendations for action.

The Taskforce’s report will recommend future actions to grow and support the NSW Volunteering Sector, enhance our understanding of volunteering, and increase awareness and recognition of the contributions and benefits the sector generates.

The Taskforce encourages the NSW Volunteering Sector to provide input into the report through an online written submission form.

To provide an online submission please visit the NSW Volunteering Website (https://www.volunteering.nsw.gov.au/nsw-volunteering-taskforce ) and follow the links.

The consultation process is open and will close at 5pm on Friday, September 30.

If you have any questions regarding making a submission, please contact the Volunteer Taskforce Secretariat, Kellie May at [email protected] or on 0491 217 036.
