Why don’t people volunteer: Strengthening Australia’s volunteer ecosystem

Join our expert panel as they explore pathways into volunteering and debunk some common misconceptions about why people don’t volunteer.

Event details

Volunteers play a crucial role in building stronger, more connected communities. They also deliver many essential services. But with less than one-third of Aussies engaged in volunteering and volunteer numbers on the decline, how can we convince more people to get involved?

Join our expert panel as they explore pathways into volunteering and debunk some common misconceptions about why people don’t volunteer.   

Curtin University Professor Kirsten Holmes will be joined by Traci Gamblin (Deputy CEO, Volunteering WA), Dr Trevor Gorey OAM (President, Men’s Shed WA), Krishan Shah (Lead Curtin Community Programs), and Professor Peter McEvoy (Curtin University). 

If you can’t make it in person, you can join us online. Please note a link to stream the event will be sent to you via email closer to the date.
