Impact of COVID19 on the NSW Volunteering Sector

In April/May 2020 the Department of Communities and Justice conducted an online survey of NSW volunteer involving organisations.

The results make clear there have been a wide range of impacts experienced by both volunteers and volunteer organisations.

They learned that physical distancing restrictions have meant that volunteer organisations have had to suspend operations, stand down volunteers especially if they were in a high-risk category, and move programs and activities online.

This data seems to match the experience of many palliative care volunteer services. The NSW Government wants to move forward by co-designing solutions to help rebuild the sector.
