Volunteers play a critical role in helping shape Australia and building stronger and more resilient communities. Volunteering touches all aspects of Australian society, whether it be helping out with local sporting teams and land care groups, responding to natural disasters and emergencies, or helping local charities support some of our most disadvantaged people.
More than eight million Australians volunteer each year, freely giving their time, energy and skills to supporting others. Australian volunteers are the backbones of their communities and are made up of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds.
