National Standards for Volunteer Involvement

New National Standards for Volunteer Involvement

Helen Henry, 12th May 2015

Volunteering Australia has just launched new National Standards for Volunteer Involvement to mark the beginning of National Volunteer Week 2015 (11-17 May). The new Standards incorporate significant changes to the original standards in order to reflect best practice in volunteer management in Australia’s current work environment.

The Standards provide a framework for supporting the volunteer sector in Australia, including good practice guidelines and benchmarks to help organisations attract, manage and retain volunteers, as well as manage risk and safety in their work with volunteers. For volunteers themselves, these standards help to improve the volunteer experience.

Find out more and access the Standards in the CBAA Resource Library.
