    Reinvigorating Volunteering - media release 7 May 2021

    South Australian’s are being asked to put their hand up to volunteer as organisations currently face a shortage of volunteers to undertake essential work. At the height of the pandemic last year, two out of three volunteers stopped volunteering which added to the existing decline in volunteer numbers which was down 7 percent in 2019/2020. Many volunteers were temporarily stood down, and as volunteer programs get back up and running, some of these volunteers are sadly, not returning. Volunteer involving organisations are now finding it difficult to re-engage or recruit volunteers even though the demand is there.
