National Volunteer Week (NVW) is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.
From 20–26 May 2019, thousands of events will be held across the country to say thank you to the 6 million Australians who volunteer their time. The week-long celebration will include breakfasts, morning/afternoon teas, and luncheons, as well as open days, award ceremonies, picnics, forums and training sessions.
The theme National Volunteer Week 2019 is “Making a world of difference.” Logos are now available for download from the Volunteering Australia resources page.
Volunteering WA with support from our award sponsors Lotterywest, Bankwest, Department of Communities, YMCA WA, Community News, Silverchain, Adcorp, and the Office of Multicultural Interests hold the annual WA Volunteer of the Year Awards which recognise the volunteering contributions of individuals and organisations.
The prestigious gala dinner, this year to be held at the Hyatt Perth in May, is attended by over 300 people including dignitaries such as the Governor and the Minister for Volunteering.
