Volunteering in the Valley – HandsUp Latrobe Valley
Latrobe Health Assembly appointed a Volunteering Development Officer in May 2019 who created HandsUp Latrobe Valley, an initiative focused on the development and coordination of volunteering opportunities in Latrobe Valley.
HandsUp Latrobe Valley aimed to build capacity for volunteer-involving organisations to develop appropriate volunteering opportunities and resources to adapt their volunteer engagement to the changing needs and expectations of volunteers in Latrobe City.
Hightlights of this project include:
- The Volunteering Development Officer developed 36 written stories and 15 videos about local volunteers. This fed into a social media campaign across the Latrobe Health Assembly social media channels;
- HandsUp Latrobe Valley created and distributed a Volunteer Management Toolkit which has gone out to 13 organisations. Hardcopies are available from Latrobe City Libraries, Latrobe City Council offices, Latrobe Health Assembly office and the Baw Baw Latrobe LLEN; and
- The implementation of Volunteering Opportunity Boards with volunteering opportunities in the 4 Latrobe City libraries.
