Volunteering Tasmania gives evidence at public hearing on our Aged Care Workforce

Deputy Chair of the Volunteering Tasmania Board, Donald Coventry, gave evidence at the Aged Care Workforce public hearing on Monday 31 October in Launceston.

Volunteering Tasmania (VT) has welcomed the opportunity to give evidence at the public hearing, to outline how the volunteering industry has been impacted by changes in aged care.

Key concerns raised by Mr Coventry included:

• The importance of volunteers to the current and future status of aged care. Volunteers are critical to giving social engagement, interaction and companionship across Tasmania’s aged care facilities and hospitals.

• The impact of Tasmania’s rapidly ageing population on our volunteer workforce

• Making sure that Volunteer Involving Organisations are well supported as we move into a Consumer Directed Care system

• Challenges for Volunteer Involving Organisations to budget for volunteer programs; recruit and retain volunteers

VT’s submission to the Senate Inquiry into Aged Care can be found on our Publications Page under the “Advocacy” heading: https://www.volunteeringtas.org.au/publications/

Submission to the Fair Work Amendment (Respect for Emergency Services Volunteers) Bill 2016

Submission to the Fair Work Amendment (Respect for Emergency Services Volunteers) Bill 2016 (433KB PDF)

Volunteering Australia recently made a submission to the Senate Education and Employment Committees. This submission reflects views from all State and Territory Peak bodies – including Volunteering Tasmania.

The submission clarified the volunteering sector’s concerns around the Fair Work Amendment (Respect for Emergency Services Volunteers) Bill 2016.

Volunteers in the emergency services save lives. They vital to the work of the volunteering industry. We are pleased, therefore, to see the Federal Parliament engaging with the issue of respect for volunteers within the emergency services. We welcome the opportunity to debate the contribution of volunteers to the overall well being of Australian society.

An important announcement from the CEO

To the Tasmanian volunteering community,

Due to a reduction in funding and changes in the sector, Volunteering Tasmania has recently been required to review the way that we provide services.

As a result, with the main objective of continuation of quality service to the whole state, the Board has decided to move staff into new roles and streamline some programs.

We see this as an opportunity to thoroughly reassess what we do and how we do it, and as a result provide you, the Tasmanian volunteering community, with a more relevant and useful service. We are proud of our history of great service, but shifting demands in the sector have made these changes necessary to ensure we are still giving you what you need, now and into the future.

The most significant of these changes is that we will be closing our North West office on 15 June 2016.

The VT office in South Burnie opened in January 2006 and we have had some talented and dedicated staff members in that time who have all done a wonderful job for the organisation. We are very proud of their achievements and the networks they have built in that time.

All of us at Volunteering Tasmania have thoroughly enjoyed working with Lana Davis, the VT Volunteer Management Consultant for the North West Region. Her passion for volunteering is enormous, and she has made a huge contribution to our organisation and the sector whilst she has been in this role. Sadly, Lana will be leaving VT when the South Burnie office closes.

Our Hobart and Launceston offices will remain open but the focus of these offices will change. We will be strengthening the way that we can practicably support organisations to find the volunteers they need and keep them. We also want to make it easier for people to find volunteer roles that are a good fit for them.

There will still be regular Network Meetings statewide, general advice and support for managers of volunteers statewide, and access to VT resources. Our services will continue to be provided to the sector all across Tasmania, from our Hobart and Launceston bases.

This is not a decision the Board has taken lightly. Maintaining relationships with you, and ongoing provision of excellent service across the entire state, is of paramount importance to us.

All enquiries can be directed to admin@volunteeringtas.org.au, and I will respond to you personally.

Sincerely,

Adrienne Picone, CEO, Volunteering Tasmania

Final report into Arts and the News to Rural and Regional Australia

The final report from the House of Representatives Inquiry into Arts and the News to Rural and Regional Australia has recently been tabled.

The report makes a total of 9 recommendations and notes that engagement with the arts for individuals and communities is necessary and important – particularly for regional areas like Tasmania.

Volunteering Tasmania was pleased to note that the importance of volunteering was highlighted in the report . It noted that our artistic groups that engage volunteers and amateur artists, increasingly benefit from the access to professional networks and events- often only afforded through regional and rural tours.
