The Queensland Volunteering Action Partnership (the Partnership) brings government, community and corporate sectors together to increase volunteering participation and realise the social, economic and cultural benefits for Queensland communities.
Membership includes representatives from Volunteering Queensland, regional Queensland, University of Queensland, Community Services Industry Alliance, Local Government Association of Queensland, Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland, Queenslanders with Disability Network, Red Cross Queensland and a youth representative.
Government agencies include those involved in fire and emergency services, sport and recreation, tourism and local government, and working with First Nations Queenslanders and culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
The first meeting of the Partnership was held on 21 July 2020.
An Action Plan has been developed to address current issues in volunteering. Key actions include working with Volunteering Queensland to broaden the role of Care Army volunteers , building on the goodwill and awareness generated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
