Strengthening Diversity in Volunteering

The Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre received grant funding from the Australian Government to develop a 3-part video series aimed at leaders of volunteers to strengthen diversity and inclusion in volunteering.

These videos focus on raising awareness of potential barriers and share examples of success, tips and advice when engaging volunteers who have a disability, who are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander or who are from a new migrant background.

Watch the series on YouTube.

Boroondara Volunteer Skills Bank

The Boroondara Volunteer Skills Banks connects skilled professionals with community organisations seeking support with flexible or short-term projects.
A skilled professional from the Skills Bank could assist you with your organisation’s website, marketing, IT or even fill a board or committee position.

We have created a toolkit designed to equip, inspire and encourage community organisations to create skilled volunteer projects and roles.

Download the toolkit (PDF, 1.1 MB)

Learn how to connect with volunteers on the Skills Bank when you become a member of the BVRC.
