Our Mission

Volunteering Illawarra’s vision is to be a regional centre of excellence that promotes volunteering and the value of volunteers to the community. Our primary activity is the operation of a regional volunteer resource centre across the Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama Local Government Areas.
