There are changes for job seekers to get voluntary work approved

Published: 1 July 2024

From 1 July, there’s a new process for voluntary work approvals. You’ll need to use a new form to request any approval of voluntary work to meet your requirements.

We’ve simplified the voluntary work approval process and verification form you’ll need to complete.

Before you can do approved volunteer work, the voluntary work organisation must declare they meet certain criteria.

The organisation you’re seeking to do volunteer work with must complete the same form as you. They’ll need to declare the voluntary work and placement meet our approved criteria.

Use this verification form to seek approval from us for voluntary work to meet your requirements.
