Volunteers help build strong, healthy and inclusive communities by supporting community organisations, events and activities.
Changing Face of Volunteering Forum
In May this year, Noosa Council hosted the 'Changing Face of Volunteering Forum', as part of National Volunteering Week. The forum focused on how volunteers are now looking for short-term opportunities to help out, rather than long-term committment to one cause or group. Watch presentations from the event, below.
- Contemporary Volunteering Trends – Michelle Lindley from Volunteering Queensland
- Transformation: moving from ‘having’ volunteers to ‘involving’ volunteers – Anastasia Magriplis from Uniting Care
- Capturing the imagination of a new generation: how and why volunteering needs to change with the times – Shari Engelbrecht from Orange Sky Laundry
