ACT Volunteering Statement

The ACT Government recognises the benefits, opportunities and needs of volunteering in the community. The principles set out in the ACT Volunteering Statement are a platform for good practice. They reflect a whole-of-government and community approach to supporting and recognising volunteers.

The Community Services Directorate engaged Urbis to undertake a consultation process with the community sector and DeeDeeRa Actuaries to undertake an Actuarial Study on the ACT Community Sector. These reports informed the attributes and scope of the Scheme. For the purpose of providing the community with background and scope of the Scheme the Minister for Community Services has released the two reports.
