Hazard Note 006 is an overview of the Sustainable volunteering cluster of research projects. This cluster has two linked studies:

This Hazard Note, available to download on the right, details the aim of each project, the work completed to date and the outcomes so far. More information about each project is available on the project pages, including completed reports referred to in the Hazard Note.

Additionally, the short video below features Dr Josh Whittaker and end user Lucas van Rijswijk (Tasmania Fire Service) talking about the aims of the Out of uniform study and how it will assist emergency service agencies.

The cluster aims to develop new models, strategies and approaches for volunteering that support emergency management to:

  • Improve the long-term sustainability of the volunteer workforce.
  • Better engage the potential of volunteering to build disaster resilience in Australian communities.
