Since 1933, volunteering has been a key part of the ‘spirit of Binna Burra’. Since the 2019 bushfire devastation, volunteers have assisted substantially to the disaster recovery process on the Binna Burra Cultural Landscape.

Steve Noakes, Chair of Binna Burra Lodge Ltd said: ‘Especially since the 2019 bushfires, Binna Burra has collaborated closely with Griffith University on a range of research topics, and this is another one we wish to support to investigate the challenges affecting rural volunteering in Australia. The research will be beneficial to bushfire impacted communities like ours and it aligns with Australia’s new national volunteering strategy’.

PhD opportunity to join the Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage project team for Developing a National Rural Volunteering Roadmap (2025-2035).The ARC project will conduct a national analysis of volunteering demand and supply, and generate new interdisciplinary knowledge of the structural, demographic, organisational and personal factors affecting the sustainability of rural volunteering.

Expected outcomes of this project include a world-first index of volunteering vulnerabilities and a spatial map of volunteering unevenness, leading to the development of an evidence-based National Rural Volunteering Roadmap (2025-2035), which will guide our volunteering peak body partners, governments and rural communities to plan for and support rural volunteering over the longer-term.

The primary focus of the PhD role is to work under the supervision of the project lead Associate Professor Leonie Lockstone-Binney to investigate the personal (individual) factors affecting volunteering supply in rural Australia to uncover how an individual’s participation in rural volunteering changes over time and at different stages of their life. The evidence base from the PhD project will inform the Roadmap, the key deliverable of the broader project.
