National Volunteer Week is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. At this uncertain time, it is more important than ever to recognise and acknowledge Australia’s volunteers.

The dates for National Volunteer Week 2020 are Monday 18 May – Sunday 24 May 2020 with the theme “Changing Communities. Changing Lives”.

Events that are usually held during National Volunteer Week have been been postponed or cancelled, however in line with the initiatives of Volunteer Australia, we encourage our supporters to recognise the work of volunteers everywhere
