Valuing Sport and Recreation
A framework for the future

Volunteering Victoria has made a submission to the Department of Health and Human Services Valuing Sport and Recreation: A framework for the future discussion paper process.

This submission highlights the growing informality of volunteering in sport and recreation and the importance of fostering a diverse and professionalised volunteering workforce, from community sport through to the professional level. It recognises that there are more than 580,000 volunteers in sport and recreation, more than 22 times the number of paid employees, making sport and recreation the largest volunteering sector in Victoria.
