Road signs to good and bad news

There have been mixed results for volunteering in the 2018-19 Federal Budget, says Volunteering Australia. While we acknowledge the Government’s contributions to the sector through the Volunteer Management Activity and annual Volunteer Grants, they are disappointed that there is no strategic approach to grow a culture of giving in Australia.

New research of 2,018 Australians by NRMA Insurance has found that the vast majority of Australians are committed to helping others. Three quarters (74%) say they give up their time to help others in their community. Almost half volunteer in an organised way (41%) while two thirds donate to charity (67%).
