Ministerial Council for Volunteers
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.
Membership of the Council reflects the diversity of volunteers in Victoria and members were appointed for their breadth of experience covering a wide range of volunteering perspectives.
The Council met for the third time on 20 May 2016 to consider its inaugural work plan.
