2018 Victorian State Elections

The Victorian Election will be held on 24 November 2018. This means that in November, independents and candidates from all political parties will be campaigning in their electorates. We want our leaders to know all about the enormous contribution that volunteers make for Victoria – their value, their challenges, their experiences.

Volunteering Victoria’s research digests provide a snapshot of recent developments in volunteering research and analysis from reputable institutions and centres.  


These panel sessions present an opportunity for a genuine discussion with participants about current research issues and trends in volunteering. The input from participants at the roundtable events informs Volunteering Victoria’s work policy and advocacy work generally, and in particular, our work for the Volunteer Management Special Interest Group and our advocacy on behalf of the volunteering sector.
