Volunteering Victoria has partnered with NAB, one of Australia’s leading corporate volunteering programs, to help community organisations make the most of skilled corporate volunteers. During its 16 years of operation, NAB employees have contributed more than 180,000 community volunteering days. This year alone, NAB’s employee volunteering contribution equates to $8.2 million in value.
In July 2014, Work for the Dole (WFTD) commenced for eligible job seekers aged 18 to 30 in four selected areas across Victoria (Westgate, Goulburn Valley, Mornington Peninsula and Geelong). To assist you to better understand the Scheme and its implication for volunteering, we have prepared a Position Statement about Work for the Dole (currently in draft), which highlights key aspects of the Scheme and suggests what your organisation needs to consider when deciding whether (or not) to participate.
Volunteering Victoria is deeply concerned about plans to remove the Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission (ACNC) and is supporting a campaign to call on Senators to retain the organisation.
The ACNC provides an easy way for the public to identify us, and check our bona fides. As an organisation, its existence as an independent regulator supports us to improve our reputation and our revenue base, develop strategic alliances and partnerships and build capacity for our organisation to grow.
Join us on 5 December 2014 join us in acknowledging and enhancing people’s participation, engagement and voice, in shaping our nation and the world we want through the spirit of volunteering.
The latest findings from NAB’s Charitable Giving Index – released twice a year – are now available online.Read more ›
