QWaLC would like to invite and encourage member groups, landholders, farmers and volunteers in Queensland to contribute their experience working with and/or being part of of the land and water carers community.

The environmental benefits of QWaLC member groups’ activities are often quantified and promoted. However, we all know that groups provide deeper benefits for their communities and contribute to Australia’s identity.

Landcare Australia has partnered with KPMG to better understand the nature and extent of the benefits experienced by the people involved in Landcare groups or engaged in Landcare like activities.

Together, we can assess and communicate those benefits to a wider range of stakeholders, ensuring that the real value of Landcare and environmental volunteerism is recognised and receives the additional support we know is strongly justified.

We are seeking insights from individuals involved in Landcare Groups and Networks, Bushcare Groups, ‘Friends of’ Groups, Coastcare Groups and other environmental community groups. The survey responses and the insights will help us develop a picture of how we all contribute to the wellbeing of communities and individuals.

The information collected through the survey will be combined with other evidence to develop a report on the findings of the research. Respondents that complete the survey will not be named, therefore neither Landcare Australia nor KPMG will receive any respondent’s names, and only aggregated data will be provided to KPMG.

The survey is open for two weeks, closing at 11.59pm AEST Tuesday 26 May, 2020.

The results from this study will be made publically available. Your collective insights will help everyone involved in the Landcare movement generate a stronger case for funding support into the future for all.
