Volunteering Strategy – Call for Input

Volunteering Strategy – Call for Input

The Department of Rural and Community Development has launched a Call for Input (CFI) in order to develop a National Strategy on Volunteering .

The purpose of this document is to:

  • Inform stakeholders of the proposed volunteering strategy;
  • Seek views from stakeholders on what constitutes volunteering;
  • Invite comments and proposals on the CFI including additional and emerging considerations which may further inform the Strategy.

The outcome of this CFI and potentially the input from a proposed National Advisory Group will inform the Department’s development of this volunteering strategy.

The closing date for submissions is 3pm on Thursday, 14 February 2019. Submissions received after this time and date will not be considered. Only submissions made on the Submission Form will be considered.

Further details on the CFI, including a downloadable submission form, can be found at:
