SAVI Network Meetings
Volunteer Managers and Coordinators, whether paid or unpaid, are invited to attend SAVI meetings held quarterly throughout the year. These meetings provide a valuable opportunity for Managers and Coordinators to network with their peers, share best practice and discuss relevant issues related to volunteers and volunteering. A component of the meetings consists of professional development for Volunteer Managers and Coordinators as well as general information. There is no charge to attend these meetings. All meetings are held online using the Zoom platform. For further details on upcoming meetings please click here

HELP US SAVE SOUTHERN VOLUNTEERING!
Since 1984, we have provided services to thousands of volunteers and community organisations across the southern suburbs and the Fleurieu Peninsula. We believe that our community deserves to have access to a dedicated team who are familiar with the not-for-profit sector and are experienced at navigating the opportunities available within it.
Unfortunately, we may not be in a position to provide this valued service for much longer… In July 2022 we will lose our core Federal funding and will have to close our doors in the very near future if we cannot influence the Federal government to reinvest in the services we provide.
If you can spare a moment to sign our petition and to email firstname.lastname@example.org with a testimonial of why you think we are needed in the South, you will be assisting us in demonstrating that we are an essential service, ultimately helping us to gain the funding we need to continue operating.
