The achievement of the Volunteering Strategy for South Australia and the goals require all hands on deck. It involves different sectors working together in a collaborative way by pooling resources, knowledge and expertise.

Cross sector partnerships that involve state and local government, business and non-for-profit organisations are essential for getting us to where we need to be by the year 2027.

There are a range of multi-stakeholder initiatives helping to contribute to achieving Volunteering Strategy outcomes.
