What is volunteering?

Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good without financial gain.

This definition of volunteering, revised in July 2015, has been updated to reflect the huge variety  of volunteering activities around the nation.

Volunteering Tasmania’s motto is “Do What You Love”.  If you are considering volunteering, returning to volunteering, looking for a new volunteer role or just want to find out more about what volunteering might mean for you, including the health benefits and impact on happiness, we can help.  Click here for an overview of what we can do for you.

For more information on the definition of volunteering, please refer to Volunteering Australia’s Definition of Volunteering document, visit the Volunteering Australia website or read our Media Release announcing the new definition.

Here is a presentation answering FAQs about the new definition. If you have further questions please email us.
