Volunteer your ideas on volunteering
Published on 20 July 2021
Mornington Peninsula Shire is seeking your feedback about how individuals and services can better access volunteering roles and volunteers?
We want to know what resources are readily used to find out about volunteering in our community and how community organisations are finding their volunteers?
We hope to provide better opportunities for both volunteers and community organisations to boost the recovery of the sector after Covid. Our research has shown that many community organisations, especially those working with older age groups have experienced a large decline in volunteers.
Our community consultation closes on 27 August 2021.
Your feedback will be used to inform the future direction of our volunteering opportunities.
There are many reasons to volunteer. For some it offers the chance to give something back to their community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Volunteering also benefits our mental health through building new friendships with like-minded people.
