ACTCOSS believes volunteering facilitates a sense of social inclusion, which in turn plays an important role in addressing social disadvantage. The focus of this comment is areas where the ACT Government could develop and expand policies relating to volunteers, such as spontaneous volunteering, governance and supporting community organisations develop practices which will facilitate mutually beneficial relationships.
