Giving and Volunteering in Australia 2014: Environmental Scan/Literature Review

Giving and Volunteering in Australia: literature review summarises the findings of a comprehensive literature search that identifies relevant research on giving and volunteering in Australia.  The report comments on the strengths and weaknesses of the methods used and the lessons that can be learned for the development of a future research agenda.  The report arranges the findings in separate sections under the headings government sources, industry sources, university/peer-reviewed sources and international comparative sources.  We learned that in the last 25 years there has been a growing body of knowledge about the dimensions of giving and volunteering in Australia, but much of the available data is not easily comparable or collected at regular intervals.
