The annual National Volunteer Welfare and Efficiency Survey opened on 31 August and you are encouraged to have your say.
One of the largest surveys of its kind, the Volunteer Welfare and Efficiency Survey being run by our Victorian counterparts (VFBV), is a critical tool to capture formal, evidence-based feedback directly from volunteers about their expectations and satisfaction with matters they feel are a priority for their general welfare and efficiency.
2018 will be the seventh time the survey has been offered and with the high number of participants it is an extremely reliable representation of the views of volunteers. Participation in the survey is important to ensure the survey continues to be a significant method of capturing volunteer opinion, monitor trends and guarantee volunteer voices are heard.
For the third year the survey is also being offered to fire service volunteers across Australia which will allow for a comparative view about how volunteers feel compared to their peers in other fire services.
It is vital that you get involved. The survey will take 10–15 minutes to complete and is open until close of business on Monday 22 October.
