In fact, since volunteering happens in very diverse contexts, the range of related public policy impacts is equally broad. In our policy and advocacy work, Volunteering Victoria:
- provides feedback to the government based on the views of our constituents via formal submissions and informal networking
- facilitates workshops and creates resources to explain the new regulations and their impacts
- supports individual organisations with advice on implementing necessary internal changes
- communicates widely about the changes to reach affected organisations beyond our member and subscriber base
Much of our advocacy work occurs behind-the-scenes; advising officials on key volunteering issues and keeping ourselves informed to ensure that volunteering has a voice in the development of policy and regulation.
