Every year, almost six million Australians volunteer, dedicating over 600 million hours to helping others. Volunteers provide an irreplaceable service. Volunteering benefits communities, the economy, and increases social cohesion.

Research reveals that volunteering also benefits volunteers themselves. It reduces symptoms of depression, improves self-reported health and lowers mortality. Volunteering expands people’s social networks, and gives people new skills which can lead to employment.
