About us

Volunteering is a vital part of the South Australian way of life - generating great community spirit and helping to make our neighbourhoods welcoming, safe and inclusive.

Whether it is delivering meals, helping others in an emergency, patrolling our beaches, running our sporting clubs or supporting the needs of others, volunteers make a real difference to our lives and to the community in which we live.

We provide strategic policy advice to the South Australian Government on issues impacting volunteers and supports the Minister for Volunteers to maintain a high level of formal and informal volunteering in South Australia.

We also play a key role in implementing the Volunteering Strategy for South Australia, a landmark agreement established between the volunteer community and the South Australian Government. Through this agreement, we work with the volunteer community to create a variety of resources, programs and events to help support and develop volunteerism in South Australia.
