About the forum

The Disability Inclusion in Volunteering Western Metro Forum is an initiative of the Victoria ALIVE project in collaboration with Volunteer West & Brimbank City Council.  The forum has been developed to engage volunteer-involving organisations in the Western metropolitan region in an active process of identifying and understanding the issues impacting on disability inclusive volunteer co-ordination and management at a local level.

Through attendance at the forum, organisations will have the opportunity to:

  • Discuss challenges and benefits they experience around including volunteers with disability
  • Hear from people with lived experience of disability around their experience in volunteering
  • Hear from local organisations about effective and sustainable solutions they use to create volunteer opportunities for people living with disability
  • Take action to improve the involvement of volunteers with disabilities.

Registration

There is no cost to attend however places are limited so please register if you wish to attend.

Registrations close on Thursday 4 July.

Please note: We welcome attendees to bring a carer or support person however kindly ask that you register their attendance separately so we can appropriately cater for numbers, dietary requirements and accessibility requirements.
