About Inclusive Volunteering Program

The aim of the program is to assist people who identify as having a barrier in finding volunteer placements in the ACT.

Since 2012 IVP has placed over 100 participants into volunteering roles and in some cases these placements have helped participants secure paid work for themselves. Participants of IVP have learned new skills, gained confidence, made new friends and have experienced a reduction in social isolation by becoming more involved with the community.

IVP has been shown to have a positive impact on volunteers with barriers as well as their involving organisations. Organisations who take on volunteers with identified barriers often benefit from a strengthened appreciation of diversity and a stronger sense of social inclusion within their workplace.
