The Ministerial Council for Volunteers (the Council) has been established to advise the Government on how best to support and strengthen the volunteer sector.

About

The Ministerial Council for Volunteers was set up in 2015 to provide high-level independent advice to government, to inform a coordinated, whole-of-government approach to support and strengthen the volunteering sector. The Council is chaired by the Minister for Families and Children and meets quarterly to discuss volunteering issues and progress its work plan.

Members

Members of the Council were appointed for their experience covering a wide range of volunteering perspectives. A representative from Volunteering Victoria also acts as Advisor to the Council to provide expert advice, minimise duplication of efforts and feedback to support council objectives.
