The Volunteer Crisis!

Help us better understand volunteering in schools so that we can help P&Cs attract and engage helpers. Fill in our Survey today!

ACT schools have a strong history of parent support, but many P&Cs are now struggling for volunteers. To help, P&C Council, along with other organisations, is conducting an online survey and they’d love to hear from all parents, whether you currently volunteer or not.

Find the survey here:

The purpose of the survey is better understand what motivates people to help at school and what barriers stop parents from volunteering. The results will help us create new resources tailor-made for the school environment to help schools attract new and valuable volunteers.
