As part of National Volunteers Week celebrations the 2010 Volunteer Race Day will be held at Corbould Park Racecourse at Caloundra.
This will be our 5th annual Volunteer Race Day. The event is a gathering of volunteers, community groups and the general public. Everyone is welcome. It is a great opportunity for all of us to celebrate and thank all the volunteers on the Sunshine Coast for the enormous contribution they make to the community through their work.
The event is made possible by sponsorship from corporate organisations and community groups.
Why not get a group together, bring a picnic and have a great day at the beautiful course. What a fabulous opportunity for a midyear get together.
Entry tickets to the day are FREE to volunteers and their families!

Volunteering Sunshine Coast (VSC) is an independent not-for-profit organisation committed to building the local community sector on the Sunshine Coast. We were established in 2003 as a result of Volunteering Queensland seeing a need for a one stop shop which community groups could access for support. Currently over 150 community organisations are members of VSC plus we also offer assistance to the broader volunteer community.

By providing support to our community groups Volunteering Sunshine Coast hopes to enhance the quality of life in the broader community. We do this by strengthening organisations and the people who manage volunteers by offering support, resources, training, volunteer linking and networking opportunities.

The services we offer....

Volunteer linking: Community organisations seeking volunteers can become members of VSC and we will assist them in sourcing volunteers. Individuals seeking volunteering opportunities are interviewed face to face and referred to appropriate positions, taking into account their interests and skill levels. Many organisations find this process valuable as it saves them time and allows them to find volunteers with the specific skills they require. Last year we placed 1,200 volunteers.

Resources: We have available a lending library and a large number of procedures to assist in the best practice of managing volunteers. A "skill bank" has been established of people willing to assist volunteer managers in areas such as business management, submission writing, financial accountability, risk management, legal queries and governance. These services are available at no charge.

Training: A schedule of regular training is available to the general volunteer community or training can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of individual community groups. We also provide training to volunteers. Each year we hold a large Volunteer Recognition Event as part of National Volunteers Week -- all volunteers on the coast are invited to attend.

Events assistance: Often groups have one off events and need volunteers to help with the many varied tasks. We assist the organisations to fill these roles by contacting our large database of interested volunteers.

Corporate volunteering: Many corporate organisations have programs to encourage their employees to undertake volunteer work. We assist the corporate organisations in placing their employees into volunteer positions as individuals, as a group, or as part of an event or project.
In assisting community groups our role is varied and ever changing. Despite having limited funding we always endeavour to assist with the varied requests of community groups.
Volunteering Sunshine Coast is pleased to assist these wonderful volunteers and community groups who support our broader local community.
