Welcome to Volunteer Network

Volunteer Network is an organisation for people wishing to become actively involved in the local community. We can help you find a rewarding volunteer position within a community service organisation of your choice. Your gift of time will help older people and those with disabilities live independently and comfortably in their homes. You can choose when and where you work, within the Inner West area.



Launch of the new National Standards for Volunteer Involvement

Volunteering Australia's new National Standards for Volunteer Involvement (the Standards) were launched yesterday to mark the beginning of National Volunteer Week 2015.

The new Standards incorporate significant changes to the original standards in order to reflect best practice in volunteer management in Australia's current work environment.

The benchmarks contained in the Standards are specifically designed to help organisations attract, manage, recognise and retain volunteers, and to manage risk and safety with respect to volunteers.

Guidance on applying the Standards will be provided via comprehensive implementation resources.

Additionally, Volunteering Australia will be developing a flexible, tiered voluntary certification, or 'Quality Mark' system to enable organisations to check how they are tracking in implementing the Standards.
