New South Wales State of Volunteering Report

The Centre for Volunteering, in partnership with the Department of Communities and Justice, is excited to be launching the inaugural New South Wales State of Volunteering report on 9th August, 2021.

The in-depth analysis in the report will showcase the characteristics of volunteers, volunteering and volunteer-involving organisations. It will produce a detailed cost-benefit analysis of the social, cultural and economic impacts of volunteering on communities in NSW.

The report was undertaken by the Institute of Project Management which surveyed more than 1,100 volunteers and received more than 1,000 responses from volunteer-involving organisations.

Strong data and insights will assist with the delivery of the NSW Volunteering Strategy and better advocate for support for volunteering and shape the future of volunteering in New South Wales.
