The NSW Volunteering Strategy 2020-2030 sets out a ten year plan for the NSW volunteering sector. Volunteering enriches the lives of volunteers, strengthens local communities and benefits all of NSW. Click here for an infographic explaining the strategy.

We would like to thank the sector, including peak bodies, individual volunteers, volunteer involving organisations and other NSW Government agencies, who all helped to develop this important strategy.

Growing volunteering

The strategy focuses on supporting the sector to attract and retain volunteers. This will ensure all people in NSW can contribute to their communities through volunteering, including people of all ages, people with disability and people from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Valuing volunteering

The strategy highlights the need to recognise the vital contributions of volunteers and the impact of volunteering. NSW volunteers contribute valuable skills, time and energy to the NSW economy. They help to deliver important services that address the government’s priorities.

Volunteers feel happier, healthier and socially connected, while helping make their communities stronger. Everyone benefits from a strong and vibrant volunteering sector.

Investing in the future of volunteering

We also aim to invest in research and technology to demonstrate the value of volunteering and support the sector to be resilient, responsive and innovative.

Staying on track

Under the strategy, we will set a clear plan every two years. We will remain accountable to the volunteering sector by publishing a Report Card for this period.

We will also conduct a thorough evaluation of this strategy at the 5 year mark and again at completion to ensure we achieve what we set out to do.
