We adopted the Glen Eira Volunteer Framework (PDF) in June 2019. It aims to support community organisations and increase volunteering in Glen Eira.
The framework identifies four priority areas.
- Lead and manage – Lead a positive culture of volunteering and the development of effective management systems to support volunteers.
- Promote and recruit – Promote volunteering opportunities and recruitment of volunteers.
- Support and develop – Support and development of volunteers to ensure they receive appropriate orientation, training, development and support.
- Recognise and celebrate – Recognise and celebrate volunteers to ensure their contribution, value and impact is understood, appreciated and acknowledged.
Our shared commitment to these priorities will ensure our volunteer programs foster a strong, resilient community. We’ll collaborate with community organisations, not-for-profit organisations, clubs and associations to strengthen their volunteer programs and initiatives.
The Volunteer Framework is underpinned by the Framework Action Plan (PDF).
