For communities, volunteering can provide people with strong social and community networks that build the capacity and resilience of communities to respond to issues and crises.
Some of the benefits of volunteering are evident in a series of mini-videos featuring older volunteers and their responses to what it means to be a volunteer. Their stories are a good reason to celebrate the power of volunteering – the theme of National Volunteer Week 2014.
The videos provide a sample of the variety of volunteering roles older people undertake and include:
The videos have been created by COTA Tas as part of the project 'Engaging in different ways: voluntary contributions', one of six projects being undertaken within the Tasmanian Government's Inclusive Ageing: Tasmania 2012-2014 Strategy.
The project aims to recognise and enhance the voluntary contributions older Tasmanians make to their communities.
A series of posters reflecting the video interviewees and their key messages have also been produced to promote older volunteering throughout the community – encouraging individuals to volunteer and organisations to engage with older volunteers.
