VOLUNTEERING WA

The benefits from volunteering extend beyond the support of just individual organisations. Volunteering WA has recently commissioned research into volunteering in Western Australia which revealed that the value it added was much higher than anticipated. For example, it was found that four out of five West Australians volunteer in some capacity and for $1 invested in volunteering, $4.50 in benefits were returned to the community.
