VolunteeringACT is the peak body for volunteering and community information in the Canberra Region, as well as being a service provider of programs for people experiencing disadvantage and isolation, people with disability, and people needing support for mental wellness. Through our activities, we improve inclusivity, enable sustainable volunteering, and create a more resilient Canberra community.

We connect people to volunteering opportunities; support volunteer-involving organisations with training, advice and volunteer recruitment; make sure information on services and supports is easily accessible to everyone through our community information services; support people experiencing disadvantage; and provide programs to help people reconnect with their community and access supported volunteering roles.

VolunteeringACT is a people-driven, service-focused organisation that represents the interests of around 200 members, advocates for and supports volunteers, and engages with the broader Canberra community.

Our board and staff believe strongly in our mission to create a more inclusive Canberra Region.

We are grateful to the many organisations who support our work, enabling us to provide vital programs and services to the people of the Canberra Region.

Our mission is to foster social inclusion by enabling participation and connection.
