Vulunteering Vichas called on the State Government to provide free rapid antigen testing kits to volunteer organisations.

It says the current surge in infections and testing only reinforce the pressing need for concrete actions supporting volunteers and their organisations.

While Volunteering Victoria welcomes the allocation of free tests to concession cardholders, this policy forgets the thousands of volunteer-involving and community organisations, and their volunteers.

The state group said it was abundantly clear that the Victorian government must urgently act to ensure organisations can count on volunteers to meet the increase demand on their services. Organisations simply do not have the means to provide rapid tests to their volunteers, and volunteers cannot be expected to cover such costs.
