An Introduction to the National Standards

Modified on Tue, 16 May 2023 at 11:48 AM

The National Standards for Volunteer Involvement provide a sound framework for supporting the volunteer sector in Australia. The Standards are much easier to follow and are adaptable to different organisation types and different forms of volunteering which reflect the diversity of this growing sector.

Direct benefits to organisations:

  • They provide good practice guidance and benchmarks to help organisations attract, manage and retain volunteers, and
  • Help manage risk and safety in their work with volunteers.

Direct benefits to volunteers:

  • They help improve the volunteer experience.
