The Sunshine Coast Social Strategy 2015 was adopted by council in June 2015. It includes a commitment to strengthen the substantial contribution made by volunteers and volunteer organisations on the Sunshine Coast.

Sunshine Coast Volunteer Sector Reference Group

The Sunshine Coast Volunteer Sector Reference Group brings together people with varied experience and expertise across different aspects of the volunteer sector, to guide the development and implementation of the 2016 – 2018 Volunteer Sector Action Plan. 

The reference group will work with council to provide feedback and advice on matters relating to:

  • volunteers / volunteering on the Sunshine Coast
  • the 2016 – 2018 Volunteer Sector Action Plan
  • Sunshine Coast Council’s target rate of 25 per cent community participation in volunteering.
  • If your organisation is interested in being a representative on the Volunteer Sector Reference Group, please email commdevelopment@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
