Volunteering Tasmania

As Tasmania’s Peak body for volunteering we make a positive impact on volunteerism, and as a result, we help to improve and sustain our wonderful community and the people within it.

Volunteering is proven to have a positive effect on mental and physical health, as well as being a potential pathway to employment.

We believe that all members of our community equally deserve the right to experience the benefits of volunteering, regardless of their background or current situation. 

Our mission is to create an environment which promotes and sustains effective volunteerism.

The revised National Standards for Volunteer Involvement have been significantly rewritten.

They are clear, easy to understand and simple to use, and take account of an organisation’s size and the different types of volunteering.
