Virtual Coffee With… Viv Cunningham-Smith, Eastern Volunteers and IEPCP Board Chair

This month our Executive Officer, Tracey Blythe, chats to CEO of Eastern Volunteers, Viv Cunningham-Smith, about the impacts of COVID-19 on volunteering and how organisations have adapted to a new environment.

“We support community organisations who require volunteer workforces… through training, through mentoring, through advice on how to structure their workforces and we also assist them to adapt to how people want to volunteer which is a changing and evolving space…”

“We set up a volunteering during COVID bank…redeploying people to a range of organisations (and) being the backbone of community organisations to keep their doors open…”

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
