Summary

In recent years, there have been significant changes to volunteering in Australia. Changes to government policies and non-profit practice have led to differences in how people volunteer, what they do and where they give their time. Volunteering in Australia provides critical snapshot of the issues in volunteering today and their impact on Australian society. Its demonstrates how change provides a fluid and contested space for volunteers and their organisations. Volunteering no longer sits outside the broad parameters of our economic and social futures. The book draws on a wide range of expertise from leading Australians, who discuss contemporary issues such as spontaneous volunteering, volunteer tourism and new forms of voluntary action.
