Summary

In recent years, there have been significant changes to volunteering in Australia. Changes to government policies and non-profit practice have led to differences in how people volunteer, what they do and where they give their time.

Volunteering in Australia provides a critical snapshot of the issues and trends in volunteering today and their impact on Australian society. It demonstrates how change provides a fluid and contested space for volunteers and their organisations. No longer can volunteering remain outside the broad parameters of our economic and social futures.

This book draws on a wide range of expertise from leading Australians, who discuss cutting edge issues such as spontaneous volunteering, voluntourism and new forms of voluntary action.

Volunteering in Australia provides a valuable and accessible resource for volunteers across the myriad of non-profit organisations, universities, and policymakers at all levels. This is essential reading for all those interested in the future of our society.
