Australians are known for their generosity of spirit and willingness to lend a hand. It is estimated that one in four people in Australia do some kind of volunteer work. They choose, of their own free will, to work without payment for the benefit of their community.

The value of volunteering
People volunteer for many reasons and in many different ways. Some use volunteering as a way to gain new skills or add to their CV.
Others use it as a way to meet new people, make new friends or try something new. Making a difference to the community and having a sense of purpose are also popular reasons for volunteering.
Whatever your own personal reason is for volunteering, rest assured it is a two-way exchange – you give but you also gain. Our volunteers also report a great sense of satisfaction, and joy at developing new skills, gaining work experience, making new friends, and simply having fun.
