The National Volunteering Conference is Australia’s leading volunteer event. Not for profit and corporate leaders, government representatives, academics, researchers, volunteer managers and volunteers are invited to attend. The 2023 conference will focus on practical and innovative approaches to ensuring the success of volunteering for future generations in Australia.

The Department of Health and Aged Care is sponsoring the ‘volunteering in aged care settings’ plenary session and will participate in the panel discussion.

The department will also host an exhibitor booth at the event – delegates are encouraged to come and chat with us about volunteering in aged care.

The conference program includes two days of interactive workshops, plenary sessions, networking and opportunities to hear from volunteering experts.
