    Survey research is a valuable tool providing insights into other people’s views, thoughts, feelings and opinions, which provides meaningful data to help drive strategic direction and ensure work is relevant and up to date. In this issue we are focussing on three key volunteering sector surveys. Thank you for your valuable feedback in our Annual Member and Stakeholder Survey which will ensure that we continue to provide the right support and resources - see the results. Expressions of Interest are currently open for the volunteer position of Independent Chair of the Volunteering Strategy for South Australia.
