Resource Hub for Volunteer Managers

  • by Linda Hansen
  • April 9, 2021

Volunteering Australia has launched an online Volunteering Resource Hub to help anyone who helps manage, lead or coordinate Australia’s almost six million volunteers.

The Volunteering Resource Hub is an initiative of Volunteering Australia, funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. It brings together useful, evidence-based and current best practice resources to support effective volunteer management across Australia.

The Resource Hub includes over 350 relevant, useful and accessible resources including policies, procedures, tools, videos, templates, guides, research and fact sheets. These resources will help volunteer managers, experienced or new, embrace the National Standards of Volunteer Involvement in their everyday practice.

A working group of representatives from across the volunteering sector in Australia helped guide the Resource Hub’s design, and over 20 volunteer management professionals reviewed, checked and tested its design, functionality and usability. This Resource Hub has been designed for the sector by the sector.

The resources cover topics such as volunteer support, development and recognition. Resources on topics relevant to the current environment volunteering is facing are also included – topics such as re-engaging volunteers during COVID-19, managing the mental health and well-being of volunteers and recruiting younger volunteers.

‘A fantastic initiative. I love how clear and easy it is to use. It will be great for people even with a very limited understanding of volunteer management. I look forward to using it.’ – Kerry Burns, Manager Volunteer Services, RSL Victoria
