NSW Volunteering Strategy

Join more than two million people who volunteer in NSW

Volunteering makes us healthier and happier, because it boosts our sense of achievement, expands our social networks and we learn new skills - while giving something back.

MAIN PRIORITIES OF THE NSW VOLUNTEERING STRATEGY:
* Making it easier to volunteer
* Supporting organisations that work with volunteers
* Recognising and celebrating volunteering
* Support for corporate volunteering
