National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. Thank you for putting your hands up and waving your appreciation for volunteers during National Volunteer Week 2020.
We are pleased to announce the dates for National Volunteer Week 2021: Monday 17 May – Sunday 23 May.
National Volunteer Week 2020
National Volunteer Week 2020 was held Monday 18 May – Sunday 24 May 2020 with the theme “Changing Communities. Changing Lives”.
Many events that would usually have been held during National Volunteer Week were postponed or cancelled. Volunteering Australia encouraged all organisations to thank their volunteers in different ways through social media or other digital formats.
We provided ideas, inspiration and tips to celebrate a virtual National Volunteer Week in 2020. We continued to sell thank you gifts via our online shop, provided resources for the week and spread the message that volunteers around Australia really are Changing Communities. Changing Lives.
We had a fantastic response to our Wave Your Appreciation campaign to recognise the great work volunteers do each and every day. While National Volunteer Week is over for another year, keep on waving to show your appreciation for volunteers.
