The NSW SES Volunteers Association communicates to its members through a wide variety of communication channels, including "The Volunteer" magazine. It is a publication designed by volunteers for volunteers.

The "Volunteer" is published by Country Wide Austral on our behalf. They raise funds to support it's publication with advertising from many businesses across NSW.

We distribute 8,000 hard copies for each issue and these are distributed to each unit twice per year in May and November. 

The " Volunteer" is focussed very much on the people that make up the NSW SES. The Volunteers. Articles from members and about Volunteers are very welcome and we encourage you to tell us your stories from a Volunteers perspective.
