In 2015 Hobsons Bay City Council developed the Active Volunteering Discussion Paper which provided an overview of volunteering in Hobsons Bay. Council then committed to developing a strategy on Active Community Volunteering that would add value and nurture an environment in which volunteering thrives while progressing and strengthening the inspiring work that had already begun. The 2016 consultations aimed to clarify and define a strategic direction for council by capturing the heart and voice of the volunteering community.
The feedback gathered has helped Council to develop the first Hobsons Bay Volunteering Strategy. Council is now asking for community to review the document and provide feedback and assist with the next steps in the planning process.
Please see the link below and follow the steps to have your say!
Tell us what you think, we welcome your feedback on the Draft Active Volunteering Strategy from 26 July 2017 through to 6 September 2017.
