*Unlike previous years, multiple volunteer managers from the same organisation are encouraged to respond.


Why take the survey?

Your perspective will help shape our understanding of how volunteering works in your community – including your motivations, circumstances, as well as the challenges and barriers – so that we can better advocate for your needs. This includes informing future policy decisions and the development of resources, to improve volunteering across all NSW.
