Social and affordable housing

To help support South Gippslanders who find themselves in need of social or affordable housing, council have created a draft Social and Affordable Housing Strategy. This strategy highlights the opportunities we have at council to support more social and affordable housing, including advocating for services and supporting providers of social and affordable housing to invest in South Gippsland.

To provide your feedback, please visit Social and Affordable Housing Strategy website. The public exhibition period closes on Friday 10 June 2022 at 5.00pm.

Volunteering survey

The Volunteering in Australia organisation survey is a historic opportunity to capture the current state of volunteering, map trends, and consider how volunteering may evolve into the future. Volunteering Australia, in partnership with Curtin University, Griffith University, and the University of Western Australia, is conducting the largest ever survey of volunteer-involving organisations in Australia.

By participating in the survey, you will help build the most comprehensive understanding of volunteering in Australia's history. The findings of this research will inform the development of the National Strategy for Volunteering, which will provide a blueprint for a re-imagined future for volunteering in Australia. To take part in this survey before it closes at midnight on Tuesday 14 June, please visit Volunteering Australia volunteer form website.

If you're a volunteer manager, program leader, CEO, or otherwise represent a group involving volunteers, you are invited to have your say on the future of volunteering
