Supporting Victorian communities when they need it the most.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of local communities. When times are tough, people want to help their neighbours. When disaster strikes, local knowledge is key to recovery.

weVolunteer is a Community Recovery Volunteering initiative designed to support communities in times of need, bringing together volunteers, the organisations that involve volunteers in their work, and Volunteer Support Organisations that provide local solutions to volunteering and the communities that are enhanced through volunteer participation.

Volunteering in times of need strengthens community bonds, improving the mental health and wellbeing of everyone involved and improving community recovery and rebuilding.

weVolunteer is delivered by Volunteering Victoria, peak body for the volunteering movement in Victoria, and funded by the Victorian Government to help mobilise volunteers to assist with community recovery following the impact of COVID-19 and other emergencies.
