Bendigo Volunteer Resource Centre Inc.
The Bendigo Volunteer Resource Centre Inc. is the lead not-for-profit volunteer agency that provides vital links for resourcing, supporting and connecting volunteers and volunteer involving organisations within the greater Bendigo and wider Central Victorian regions. We achieve this by assisting volunteers with training and support services; by assisting not-for-profit organisations with their volunteer recruitment needs; by assisting volunteer managers, co-ordinators and leaders with training and information pertaining to best practice in volunteering; and by supporting community events. These key areas of service are all linked to our Vision, Role, Values and Strategic Goals (outlined below).
