Why have volunteer figures fallen

Nothing beats that warm fuzzy feeling you get when helping someone in need and us Aussies truly pride ourselves on helping our fellow mate.

In looking at silver linings, COVID-19 has seen some truly selfless acts of service for volunteer organisations including food banks, sports communities and local charity groups.

With this being said, according to Australia’s General Social Survey published in the Sydney Morning Herald, 36% of adults in 2010 undertook unpaid volunteer work…which has fallen to a mere 29% in 2019.

In light of tomorrow being ‘International Volunteer Day’, we should not only recognise and celebrate those who selflessly step forward to help others but it should also act as a humbling reminder to ask yourself the question: how can I help?

Andrew Leigh, Shadow Minister for Charities and Non-For Profits joins John and Paul to encourage more Aussie’s to give back to those needing it most.
