Why Volunteer?

We know that 36 percent of Australia’s adult population currently volunteer – that is more than 6 million volunteers nationwide. People choose to volunteer for a wide variety of reasons, however most agree the key motivating factor is that volunteering provides individuals with a sense of purpose. Research indicates that volunteering can actually provide individual health benefits to volunteers, as well as social benefits for its recipients. (www.volunteeringaustralia.org)
