Ministerial Council for Volunteers

David Rowlands

The Ministerial Council for Volunteers (the Council) has been established to advise the Government on how best to support and strengthen the volunteer sector and oversee a broader program of volunteer recognition.

The Parliamentary Secretary for Carers and Volunteers Ms Gabrielle Williams MP will chair the Council.

The Council will provide high-level, independent advice to government, through the Minister for Families & Children, about issues affecting volunteering in Victoria and inform a coordinated, whole-of-sector approach to supporting and strengthening the volunteer sector.

The Council met for the third time on 20 May 2016 to consider its inaugural work plan.
