National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.
We are delighted to announce the dates for National Volunteer Week 2020 as Monday 18 May – Sunday 24 May 2020.
The theme for National Volunteer Week 2019 was “Making a world of difference”. From 20–26 May 2019, thousands of events were held across the country to say thank you to the 6 million Australians who volunteer their time. The week-long celebration included breakfasts, morning/afternoon teas, and luncheons, as well as open days, award ceremonies, picnics, forums and training sessions.
