Volunteers: Australia’s backbone in times of crisis
In honour of National Volunteer Week, Volunteering Australia has released a report providing evidence that volunteers are essential to Australia’s crisis resilience. The research examines the volume and breadth of volunteers playing crucial roles in communities during natural disasters and COVID-19 outbreaks.
With flooding, fires and the ongoing impacts of the pandemic, the past few years have undoubtably been tough for all Australians. Holding us up in these times of crisis are over one million volunteers supporting Australia’s crisis resilience, of which more than 400,000 work directly in emergency response and relief. Our nation’s volunteers are the country’s backbone during crisis and emergency.
