Welcome to Volunteering Geelong

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering Geelong is an independent not-for-profit organisation that is committed to enhancing the quality of life in the community, through the promotion and support of volunteering.

Volunteering Geelong was established in 1998 through the identification, by a number of individuals and members of the Geelong Volunteer Network (GVN), of the need for a "one stop shop" for volunteer recruitment and support.

Not for Profit Compliance Support Centre
Feb 04, 2014

Not for Profit Compliance Support Centre website is published by the Victorian Government's Office for the Community Sector unit within the Department of Planning and Community Development.

The Not for Profit Compliance Support Centre aims to reduce the regulatory compliance burden for not for profit community organisations and increase productivity within the sector. It seeks to achieve this by:

  • saving search time for NFP organisations in finding regulatory and compliance information which apply to their activities
  • increasing use of existing regulatory tools that are available
  • increasing regulatory awareness within the sector leading to greater compliance
  • increasing understanding of NFP organisations about the benefits of compliance
  • generally increasing productivity within the sector.

Volunteers and the Equal Opportunity Act
Feb 04, 2014

Volunteers and Sexual Harassment


On 1 August 2011 new legislation came into effect that is designed to improve the way we combat discrimination and sexual harassment in Victoria.

For volunteers, the change means new protections against sexual harassment.  For organisations there are some practical implications for the way volunteering is coordinated.

Volunteering Victoria is working to support volunteers and organisations to understand and meet their responsibilities toward volunteers under the Equal Opportunity Act 2010.

Download  EOA Information Pack, which includes

  • A fact sheet and further reading
  • An adaptable policy and procedures
  • Tips for getting started
  • Options for further advice and training.

 Also included is a couple of sample Sexual Harassment policy documents from Volunteering Victoria and Our Community along with a 20 minute and 40 minute powerpoint presentation. Resources are also available from Australian Human Rights Commission such as workplace posters.
