Victoria ALIVE project aims to increase the involvement of people with a disability in the Victorian community sector through volunteering over the course of 2018 and 2019.

Victoria ALIVE is delivered in partnership by Volunteering Victoria, Neighbourhood Houses Victoria and the Victorian Men’s Sheds Association and with the support of the Victorian State Government.

The project will build community awareness and capacity building to support the outcomes of the 2018-19 Information Links and Capacity Building (ILC) Transition Grants Stream and the outcomes of Absolutely Everyone, the Victorian Government State Disability Plan.

Research

Undertake research to better understand barriers that can hold people with disability back from volunteering, and also to learn how organisations can be more inclusive and involving.

Resources

Work with community sector organisations to tailor resources that help involve volunteers and leaders with a disability.

Training

Provide training for community sector organisations, particularly Neighbourhood Houses and Men’s Sheds, so that volunteers & staff are empowered.

Promotion
