Volunteering SA&NT is a not-for-profit organisation, the peak body for volunteering and a volunteer resource centre, leading the sector in South Australia and the Northern Territory. For 35 years, we have worked with individuals, organisations, businesses and communities to lead, advance, grow, promote and celebrate volunteering.

Through key partnerships, we provide a range of services, support and resources for over 2,000 volunteer-involving organisations and just under a million volunteers, which contributes to positive volunteering experiences and the strengthening of communities.

In South Australia there are more than 900,000 volunteers, whose contribution is valued at around $5 billion annually and in the Northern Territory, more than 70,000 volunteers, whose contribution is valued at around $3.3 billion.

Volunteering SA&NT began working in the Northern Territory in 2007 and re-branded as Volunteering NT in December 2016.


The South Australian Volunteer Centre was the brainchild of two dynamic women - Mavis Reynolds and Joy Noble with the official opening held on 23 August 1982.
