‚ÄčA strategy to encourage and support volunteering across Western Australia has been launched to coincide with National Volunteer Week.

The WA Volunteering Strategy was developed by Communities and is a call to action for the whole community to work together to recognise and support volunteers, and ensure the sector's sustainability.

It provides a broad framework for action and suggests strategies that can be implemented by all levels of government, non-government organisations, the private sector and the community, to encourage and support volunteering.

The strategy builds on national and international research, as well as extensive consultation with and guidance from a wide range of stakeholders including State Government agencies, Volunteering WA, local governments, resource centres, volunteer-involving organisations and, most importantly, volunteers.

National Volunteer Week runs annually in May.
