Building community resilience when it's needed most.

Following emergencies such as the pandemic and natural disasters, communities can take years to recover and volunteers are involved in much of that community-based work.

weVolunteer is a Volunteering Victoria initiative designed to bring together volunteers and local community organisations to help communities recover in times of need.

What is weVolunteer?

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.

weVolunteer also supports organisations to re-engage with volunteers safely as Victoria recovers from the social and economic impacts of COVID-19.

If your organisation is involved in community recovery, weVolunteer can help connect you with the support you need.

How does it work?

By keeping focused on a volunteer-centred and community-directed approach to community resilience, the program’s unique point of difference is the utilisation of four key aims:

POOL: Build a network of volunteers with a credentialed Volunteer Passport, ready to assist with recovery in their local community.

PASSPORT: Empower volunteers to create their own portable volunteering record, provided by MyPass technology.

PREPAREDNESS: Support communities to recover and build back better following a crisis through prepared volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations.

PLACE: Improve collaboration between volunteer organisations, local government and Emergency Management organisations to help address regional needs.

weVolunteer is free for everyone to use. 

It is free for volunteers to register and create their Volunteer Passport, including having their credentials verified.

It is also free for organisations to utilise the platform and promote volunteer opportunities to help support community recovery.
