What is GoVolunteer?
GoVolunteer is an initiative of Volunteering Australia. Our aim is to match people who are interested in volunteering with appropriate volunteering opportunities. The website uses a national database of volunteering opportunities. These are listed by volunteering involving organisations, Volunteer Resource Centres and State Volunteer Centres.
Who is involved in GoVolunteer?
The GoVolunteer website is an initiative of Volunteering Australia, in partnership with SEEK and Boston Consulting Group.
Volunteering Australia, along with the State Volunteer Centres, help manage the data contained in the database. This data is provided by a number of contributors including volunteering involving organisations, Volunteer Resource Centres and State Volunteer Centres.
Support and future development of the website and database is being provided by Volunteering WA through funding from Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet along with some in-kind support from SEEK and web developers Eduka.
The SEEK Volunteer and GoVolunteer initiative is supported by a number of partners who contribute to the success of the websites and the important task of bringing together volunteers and the organisations seeking them.
Volunteering WA is the peak body for volunteering in Western Australia. Volunteering WA aim to build strong communities through volunteering and provide a range of resources, services and support so that people in Western Australia are aware of, and understand, the nature and scope of volunteer activity.

SEEK would like to acknowledge the on-going dedication and commitment of the staff at Volunteering WA who provided significant advice and consultation throughout the development of the new websites and continue to support the on-going operation of the sites.
