    Making a Stand for SA Volunteers

    Volunteers will benefit financially with the proposed abolishment of fees for working with children and other screening checks. Labor have announced that volunteers, over the age of 60, will no longer have to pay for screening clearances if they are re-elected in the SA State Election next month. The Liberals have promised to scrap the fee for all volunteers and to investigate the excessive delays in the screening process. They have also pledged to extend the world-first WeDo volunteering app, which connects volunteers to organisations.
